Irina and Eva Ionesco
November 30, 2010 § Leave a comment
We have been very concerned by the attention drawn to our posts of controversial artists depicting nude and often eroticized prepubescent and underaged children; particularly by the fact that most of the search engine terms used to reach those posts are dubious,to say the least. Thusly, we would like to make it abundantly clear that we are not trying to promote underage nudity or erotica, instead we draw attention to these images as part of our general interest in the controversial and the obscure.
Irina Ionesco (born on September 3, 1935) is a French photographer born in Paris, France. She was the daughter of Romanian immigrants. She spent her childhood years in Constanta, Romania before she moved to Paris.[…]
Irina Ionesco is perhaps most famous for her photographs showcasing her young daughter, Eva. The nudes she created with Eva stirred major controversy, as many were shot showcasing the young girl in artsy, erotic situations similar to the work she did with her other, much older subjects.
A major part of Irina’s work features lavishly dressed women, decked out in jewels, gloves, and other finery, but also adorning themselves with symbolic pieces such as chokers and other fetishistic props, posing provocatively, offering themselves partially disrobed as objects of sexual possession.
Eva Ionesco (born 1965) is a French actress and film director.She became her mothers favorite model at age five. She was the youngest model to appear nude in Playboy magazine (October 1976, Italian edition) at age eleven and also appeared in controversial films such as Maladolescenza (1976, also known as Puppy Love).
