This website has been published by friends, colleagues and supporters of Lawrence Brose, an artist and arts curator who has recently been alleged to possess purportedly illicit digital images. One hundred of the listed images are film frames from his highly acclaimed film De Profundis, based on Oscar Wilde's prison writing. The purpose of the website is to attest to Lawrence’s innocence, to provide a forum for testimony on his behalf, and, importantly, to collect funds needed for his legal defense.

We are in the process of collecting testimony from individuals, many of whom are artists, academics and curators significant to the fields of art and culture.
