Pigtails depends on its readers for leads, additional research or images needed to complete certain posts. I will date each entry so you can know the last time I updated or added a new entry. The items are subdivided so, you can focus your attention on areas you are knowledgeable in. The categories are: Artists, Models and Actresses, Film and Other Media (including such things as postcards and comics). Items formerly belonging to the ‘Wish List’ have been integrated here. Some items may already appear as posts on Pigtails, but more information or examples are desired.. Many of these leads will be developed into posts but others may remain here for readers to follow up on. It is hoped that this page will eliminate a lot a duplication of effort.
The following is the coding system to help readers quickly recognize what is still needed for each post:
 This item has already been published but we would either like more images from this series or we have discovered enough new information to do a sequel.
 This item is in the pipeline and is simply waiting to be written and published.
 This item is in the pipeline and just needs a little work like transcribing, translating and/or image cleanup.
 This item is in the pipeline but requires some materials that are readily available and simply needs to be acquired and/or scanned.
 This item is a good candidate for a post but needs more research to create a complete post including what materials are relevant, perhaps contacting the artist or museum archive.
 This item is a rough lead. It still needs to be determined if this will be a full post, short post (random incidental image) or simply kept here for reference.
 Bancroft, Iris: A noted photographer in naturist groups particularly in the 1980s. She had a Yahoo fan site for a time. She did not focus on children, but those images of them show real sensitivity and I would like to feature some of her work here. Please put me in contact with someone who is an expert on this artist or the artist herself. 
 Gómez, Violeta: Gómez held an exhibition called Alicia en el pais del amor (Alice in Loveland), an ode to Lewis Carroll, in 2001 at the Museo de Siyasa in Spain. The images featured nude or seminude girls aged 7 to 10. Due to controversy the exhibition was closed after only twenty days, and the artist was charged with corruption of minors. I do not know if the series was ever collected into a book, but owing to the scarcity on the web, I guess not. Still, it would be nice to see the work that the authorities considered obscenity. If anyone has any leads on this, I would be quite interested. You can read more about it here (a great site overall devoted to censored art). Further digging has revealed that this artist is also a musician and can probably be reached more easily through that medium. There is an excellent essay written by Gómez that expresses her attitude eloquently. 
 Henze, Claire: This artist is only mentioned on the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) website to illustrate controversies about nudes. Henze did some work with her children,Anna and Nico, including nude studies somewhat reminiscent of Sally Mann. This is probably not a difficult lead to pursue, I just don’t have time to do the leg work. The “Estate” (Henze died young of cancer) should be contacted to see if access to other images can be had. The artists and children’s book author Sally Warner was a close friend of her using her photos in a couple of her books. I am sure Ms. Warner would love there to be a nice about post about her friend. 
 Kandó, Ata: Kandó’s work built on the photographic tradition of pictorialism and often featured children—including her own partially nude—in verdant natural settings, recalling classical artwork, particularly that devoted to the idyll. I’m looking particularly for images from A Hold vérébõl (Children of the Moon) as well as any of her images of Hungarian refugees from her photojournalism work that may be relevant to this site. You can read more about her and view selections of her work here. 
 Käsebier, Gertrude: I learned about this artist when doing research on Nell Dorr, who was compared favorably to this artist and Sally Mann. That suggested that she must have also shot child nudes. I could not confirm this with internet or library research but I encountered a comment that suggests that such images exist. I would like more substantial confirmation as well as some means to get scans of the relevant images. 
 Kizu, Satoshi: This Japanese artist is known for his erotic photography of young women, but he also did a nice 11-volume series of little Russian girls. The series is called МИЛЕНЬКАЯ “Cuties” and I am trying to find two of the volumes (the 6th and 7th). Fortunately these mooks promoted the older issues so I have a couple of low-res scans of the covers. I am looking to purchase these or if someone can find a good set of scans, it would be ideal to have access to all the material for a proper post. 
 Kuhn, Mona: This artist is known to have shot in many of the same naturist locations as Jock Sturges. A visit to her site indicates she is being very conservative about posting nude children. Given her subject matter, it is doubtful she is personally squeamish but is being cautious in today’s political climate. It is my hope that perhaps Pigtails could serve as an appropriate venue for a more open expression of her child nudes and a more complete biography of the artist herself. Also, now that she has been published in book form, please advise us which ones are on-topic for this site. 
 Oliver, Ron: This is a well-known artist and his early work is the most relevant to Pigtails. A book and a series of 30 postcards entitled The Secret Faces of Childhood was published. I own the book and all but four of the postcards. I would at least like scans of the remaining ones. Even if they are not used for a future post, I would like them for the sake of completeness in the Pigtails Archive. The missing serial numbers are: 006204, 006220, 006223 and 006224. 
 Rejlander, O(scar) G(ustav): There are some unreliable accounts that this artist was “known for his child nudes”. In examining Father of Art Photography by Edgar Yoxall Jones, Victorian Children by Graham Ovenden, one image, Allegory of Motherhood, contained in Julia Margaret Cameron: The Complete Photographs by Julian Cox and Colin Ford, I do not get that impression. I suspect one of two things is happening: 1) His nudes have been actively purged in the name of political correctness or 2) Certain parties are attempting to create the impression that he had this reputation. I would like some more definitive (and documented) information and if the accounts are true, this artist deserves a post on Pigtails, most especially given his significance in the history of photography and art. 
 Vogt, Christian: Among the books and coverage in ZOOM Magazine, this artist includes some images by a model named Nina. These images are unusual in that this girl is much younger than the other models he used. I came to find out that she was his daughter, Nina. I could just post the images but I would like more background information about those images and the circumstances of their production. 
MODELS AND ACTRESSES
FILM: Any readers wishing to share a film can do so anonymously so long as it is less than 2GB in size. Pigtails has a Dropbox account from which this can be done. Contact Ron (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in sharing and need detailed instructions. If you have a DVD and a computer with a CD drive, I can tell you how to format the movie so it can be transferred.
 Eene meene mopel (German, 1992–1994): I had a small excerpt from this show, but I could not find out anything about it. One of our German readers was kind enough to do some digging and offer some information. It was praised for its revolutionary format: little acts done by children (such as tongue twisters or playing guitar) accompanied by short films. The image below comes from one of those film clips and it is not clear if the girl featured, Katharina, appears in other films. In it, she and her father build a paper castle from which a ghost William emerges. The red and yellow X in the top left are the logo of the TV channel Kinderkanal, but apparently this series first broadcast on MDR, a regional channel from East Germany (DDR). There is some information on this show in German (here and here) and I would like to find someone who has any complete episodes.
 Passion Despair, 2011: This film was probably not produced in DVD either even though it was a recent release as it was banned in several countries because it is a documentary about a Moldovan photographer who shot girls images to be used on the internet. This connects to an artist I am covering and really need this background information. I tried to contact the director, Steff Gruber, but have no idea if that will yield anything. It appears that kino.net is releasing this film, but they will not respond to emails requesting details. 
 Fuck Off and Die (and/or) La Squab by Britton, David & Kris Guidio: This comic collection was put out by the notorious Savoy Books. This will perhaps be easier for our British readers to locate, since it is a British publication, but Amazon does seem to have some copies available. I am interested primarily in the pages which have the character La Squab, a little prepubescent punk girl who is known to break rules … and boundaries. This edition also has an introduction by Alan Moore. Alternately, there is now a book devoted solely to La Squab, which may even be preferable to FOAD. Savoy Books.
