On Saturday, March 20, 2010, there will be a massive National March & Rally in D.C. We will march together to say "No Colonial-type Wars and Occupations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Haiti!" We will march together to say "No War Against Iran!" We will march together to say "No War for Empire Anywhere!" Instead of war, we will demand funds so that every person can have a job, free and universal health care, decent schools, and affordable housing. March 20 is the seventh anniversary of the criminal war of aggression launched by Bush and Cheney against Iraq. One million or more Iraqis have died. Tens of thousands of U.S. troops have lost their lives or been maimed, and continue to suffer a whole host of enduring problems from this terrible war. Go to: www.march20.org

You are a photographer.

You need ICEarth and a Bigbang!

Disrupt IT

those were the days -

thank you Norm.

I was only going to post one or two, but then I didn't want to cause controversy so I just threw up a slew...

(I still don't understand that comment regarding my alleged lack of posting images on RealNEO and my "status" as a real photographer - but then there's probably a good reason for my lack of understanding which has nothing to do with any reality based issues)

you are a great photographer

And I appreciate seeing your work - especially this work!

Disrupt IT

Your work reminds me of Robert Frank "The Americans"

Very powerful stuff, yours and his.

no way

 evelyn! but i appreciate the enormous compliment. Frank is so incredibly talented. i've barely scratched his surface.

i have contemplated a series of images in his spirit though. like the depression of his day, the non-privileged need their story told. we make so many assumptions and are so quick to demonize this country's underclass.

meanwhile, they keep our country moving in many ways.

and i'd choose their ethics over those of the over-privileged any day.

their story needs telling again.
