I found the relationship he had with children disturbing! (Very MJ) The author doesn't say anything clearly, but leaves it up to the reader. But it's sort of a mystery! The pages cut out of his diary. The photograph of naked children (seen as acceptable in his time). The sudden end of his photography. The relationships with little girls. weird.
