Lebovitz/Cyrus Photo Scandal

In regards to my opinion on the concept if the photo is art or trash by Annie Lebovitz:
After researching the incident & the circumstances surrounding the photo shoot
I think the only reason why it's getting negative attention is because of the Cyrus family backing out after the initial brew-ha-ha over a 16 yr old
posing like that. I don't see any problem with it. She's not being portrayed in any way pornographically or distastefully. I still think Annie's photographs are astounding and continue to push the envelope in stirring controversy. Something I think that is missing from allot of creative endeavors these days. Getting people to "think" is just as much a part of great art as visual enjoyment.
