  1. Auriez vous des informations sur le photographe allemand Hajo Ortil, dont le livre Canoe's Pirates (1968) semble actuellement introuvable.La totalité de ses archives photos (réalisés avec le consentement des familles et des enfants) étudiant l'éveil sexuel des adolescents lorsqu'ils sont en liberté et hors du contexte social, ont été données à la fondation Bongersma mais, par la suite, saisies par la police néerlandaise qui les auraient détruites en 1995.

    1. Je n'ai pas d'informations particulière sur ce photographe auquel j'ai consacré un billet:

  2. merci pour le lien vers l'article d'aout 2017 de votre blog.
    Voici ce que j'ai pu recueuillir sur internet concernant Hajo Ortil (en Anglais).
    Hajo Ortil was in Bremen where he founded in 1949 the Hansische Piraten Seefahrende Kanujugend Bemen e.V. (Hanseatic Pirates), a naturist group of boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 18.

    Based on Bremen, Ortil accompanied the group when they put their canoes to sea for long adventurous voyages visiting solitary places from the arctic territories of Finland toGreece and shed their clothes whenever possible. Ortil encouraged both boys and girls to be open with their sexual needs. It was not uncommon for boys to masturbate in groups and play with each other during the group’s canoe trips. It was not uncommon for “Big Old Joe” (as the boys called him) to participate in the boy’s games either (Ortil never failed to show his special preference for boys), all with the tacit approval of their children’s parents, who knew about the group’s philosophy.

    It is interesting to note that despite the reactionary politics in moral matters of the federal German government, the influence of the German Youth Movement and the memory of war upheaval resulted in a frankness and liberality in this regard that astonishes in retrospect.

    According to Ortil’s introduction in Hundert nackte Wilde, the boys urged him to photograph them, and thus he began taking pictures of the group’s naked members regularly. These naked photographs of young boys and girls were regularly used to illustrate various issues of the naturist magazine Helios. The most famous of these was Hundert nackte Wilde (1957) (Hundred naked savages) featuring only naked boys, which caused a controversy in the neighboring Netherlands.

    His photographs later appeared in Sun & Health magazine in the UK, as well as several other books, including The Boy: A Photographic Essay (1964) (presented as evidence in the 1993 Michael Jackson trial).

    Hajo Ortil donated his sexological library and photographic archive to the Brongersma Foundation in the Netherlands. Nevertheless, the photographic archive was seized from the Foundation and destroyed by the Dutch police in 1999.[1]
