"The elders at Ecclesia Church were expecting something tame from Jackson Potts II for their annual Stations of the Cross art display. Instead, the 10-year-old produced a photo of his kid brother being beaten by a police officer. Jackson says it's a modern-day interpretation of Roman soldiers beating Jesus." His local church declined to display the picture in the church's art gallery. “I just want them to display it,” Jackson said as he sipped a strawberry shake recently. Most everyone agrees Jackson is a gifted artist. He's also shot weddings and will photograph an upcoming culinary conference. Damn! Maybe Art and Commerce should reach out to him. He's busier than a lot of photographers here in New York these days. You can read the full story HERE.
