Mixed Media, Photography
I am submitting seven images which are selected from a series of photographs under the following titles:
a) WHY WAR
b) THE LIFE MODEL
c) BURNING BUSH
d) THE NEW EYE OF OSIRIS
Thumbnail introducing my gallery is called 'If it Bleeds, It Leads'.
A montage photography produced 2009. Size 80 x 80 cm.
Title inspired by Susan Sontag's publication 'Regarding the Pain of Others'. Wars are now also livingroom sights and sounds. Sontag goes on to say..... Ever since, battles and massacres filmed as they unfold have been a routine ingredient of the ceaselss flow of domestic, small-screen entertainment.
