Quick note on Getty Images – “Tasting the Limits”

[photopress:wat_do_you_think.jpg,full,centered]

As we said last night, the Getty Images display at Cannes promised a provocative experience as you were exposed to possibly disturbing images. They even have a warning sign before you enter. ” You may be offended or Inspired”

This one is not really offensive, but some others follow:

People are invited to post responses here as you can see on the wall.

But what is the true point here? That for some a child with a pipe is disturbing, but it takes a person falling from a building to REALLY get you. Got me, anyway.

On Weds. there will be a seminar which will hopefully, explain it all.
I think its called” here’s the line, when do you cross it?”

We’ll get back to you on that.

Cheers!
