The answer to your question depends upon whether or not you were or are the girlfriend of the 19 year old male. If you gave the photographs to him and your were his girlfriend or are, then most likely his possession of the photographs will not be considered illegal.

If not, and it is clear that you are a minor, then perhaps his possession of the pictures is illegal. The ultimate decsion as to the legality or legality of what you write about is whether he is ever charged with a crime for his possession of the photographs and is convicted or makes a plea to any charges.
