In April 2014, photographer Wyatt Nuemann went on a two-week road trip with his two-year-old daughter, Stella. Over the course of the trip Neumann photographed his daughter in various locations, sometimes with clothes on, sometimes without. He posted the photos to Instagram and aroused the interest of a blog called Get Off My Internets that made it their mission of the moment to get Neumann’s Instagram account shut down. The 10,000 plus member forum went into full attack mode, flagging the photos as pornography and posting hateful comments calling Wyatt a “douchbag” and a “sick fuck”, accusing him of exploiting his own child. Within 24 hours, Neumann’s Instagram and Facebook accounts were temporarily shut down. In response, Neumann created a show at Soho’s Safari Gallery displaying his photographs, which he considers both art and part of his freedom of expression. He calls the exhibit “I Feel Sorry for Your Children: The Sexualization of Innocence in America.”  His mission: to create a discourse between people on both freedom of expression and how society tends to sexualize the natural acts of children.
