David Hamilton (15th of April 1933 – 25th of November 2016) was a British photographer and film director best known for his photography of young women and girls, mostly in the nude. His signature soft focus style was called the "Hamilton Blur", which was erroneously thought to be achieved by smearing Vaseline on the lens of his camera. It was not created that way. Citation needed Hamilton's images became part of an "art or pornography" debate. In the 2000s, however, his work went out of fashion and he was suspected of paedophile inclinations. In the fall of 2016, several women accused him of abusing them when they were underage. He was found dead a few days later at his home, apparently having committed suicide.
