Irrefutable proof that some (whatever the fuck you call 'em) artists, in an attempt to be edgy and/or subversive manage to reduce powerful imagery to a diluted pseudo-political comedy parody of what they believe to witty, cutting social commentary. Wankers. I hate this kind of shit. 'How can I further anesthetize an apathetic viewing public to this image of cruelty, degradation and human suffering?'. 'I know, I'll stick fucking Mickey ears on it...no-one's ever done that before!!!' No-one except 50% of all those who've ever picked up a stencil and a can of Montana and wondered round the streets on a Wednesday evening hoping that they'll be the next Banky, sorry Blek le Rat. Yawn. I've got an idea...why you go and do an Obama print...a bit like Shepherd Fairey...he got famous for taking images with depth and meaning...turning them black, white and red and stripping them of their context and thus their power.
Sorry, Monday morning.
The guy who did the Guantanamo thing is Colin Suggett...check out his work here...or don't.
But some of his other work is alright.

I wish this was real.

I'm sure alot of you have appreciated Hugo's photographs of the Nigerian 'Hyena Men'.
"In his new body of work, Pieter Hugo explores the multilayered reality of the Nigerian film industry. Nollywood is, surprisingly, the third largest film industry in the world, releasing onto the market between 500 and 1 000 movies each year."
Faction returns on the 14th...should be good. No bands this time, just DJs...problem is: I'm not playing, even though I was the best DJ at D.F.C a couple of months ago. Next time. Jay and Simon, take heed. Anyway, great to see Simon and Katie and most importantly, little L.A.B this weekend. On a slightly different note, found this video on their blog. I like. I've also added the blog to the links list.
