Art doesn’t normally pay the bills
Due to the uncertainty of photo copyrights I have removed my self from the online world, and going to focus on prints/book. I will continue to repost information I find interesting!

You take a generation of people, subdue and pacify them with an anaesthesia of moronic TV, a gruel of icons, idols and the fantasy of stardom, the banality of celebrity. Render violence and cruelty to nothing more than a cartoon, death, mutilation, murder of people now as distant a real association to mortality as a child’s confusion to the fact an actual living, breathing animal was the origin of the red slab of meat in the local ‘super’ market.
Victorian freak shows light up every living room teaching nothing but the death of creativity, praying on the weak, applauding the crass, vain, self indulgent… subdued, becalmed… no protest to anything, no mass disdain at the plight of our disabled, poor, cheated, displaced, marginalized, raped, beaten, abused, elderly, young, addicted, afflicted, the stereotyped, the different, the isolated and the enslaved.
Brought up tricked into hating those below us instead of the ruling classes above us, into the lunacy of Nationalism, into a blame culture, into the ‘Me’ generation, into a life after death. Drowning in the desire for baubles, addicted to credit and debt. Educated for slave jobs and existing in a culture where empathy is almost seen as a action of subversion or a weakness.
What happened to communities standing up against wrongs because not to do so was a dereliction of moral duty, of communal duty… of just simply giving a fuck about the people around you regardless of their ability, birthplace, sex, age, health but because they are a human being too?.
Fight back with cameras, eternal bullets every image, preserve the stories lest they be brushed aside by time."
