Alana Hubbard of Mother Hubbard Photography, a family studio in Woodbridge, New Jersey, recently conducted a very creative shoot that involved cosplaying children re-creating specific scenes from the disturbing sixth season of show The Walking Dead. While the photoshoot was very safe – all the guns were toys, the tracks were inactive and the blood was added afterwards – it was still not without its fierce objectors. Hubbard spoke with PetaPixel about the whole controversy.
I put a disclaimer on each individual photo and the album itself, and Facebook did something I’ve never seen before, blurring out the photos so you had to click to see them. …In order to see my photos, at least before the media got ahold of them, you had to go to my page, find the album, go past the warnings, AND click the photos. …People had no right to complain, because nobody asked them to come and look at my photos. …If they choose to ignore the warnings, to make the adult decision to look at the photos, then they need to be an adult about it and respect my art.
The warning Hubbard put on the clearly labeled Facebook album.
DISCLAIMER: SOME PHOTOS MAY BE TOO INTENSE FOR SOME, PROCEED WITH CAUTION.Thank you to all who participated! ALL the children were just playing a role and pretending with toys, same as the children on the show. Please tag yourselves, family and friends or any WALKING DEAD FAN you know :) Feel free to share as well! We had 24 kids there all under the age of 7! More photos to come!…AND REMEMBER THE GUN IS A TOY AND THESE ARE INACTIVE TRACKS CLEARLY
