Controversial Walking Dead Photo Shoot Gets People Talking
New Jersey photographer Alana Hubbard used little kids to pay tribute to “The Walking Dead” during a photo shoot, but the photos didn’t go over too well with the rest of the internet. Shortly after they were posted the Facebook, the photos were banned after people complained about the kids depicting violent situations.
The initial idea was simple: capture the story of the Walking Dead with children, including Alana’s own 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter, cast as the characters. But what began as a simple homage to the AMC show turned into an emotional rollercoaster when her photos went viral and sparked outrage across the Web. People called her insensitive, posted photos of dead kids on her Facebook page, and eventually got her banned (temporarily) from the social network where she attracts a large part of her business.
Ms Hubbard, who runs Mother Hubbard Photography, acknowledged that the photos were not for everyone, but said the children’s parents consented to taking part – and loved the end product.
“All of the parents are 100 per cent supporting me and love the pictures,” she said.
