Challenged Works

2002—A patron of the Toronto Public Library challenged this scholarly book by an art and photography critic at New York University. The book, which features 127 duotone photographs, was published by Columbia University Press.

Objection—The complainant said the book verges on child pornography.

Update—One copy remains in the library’s collection.
