The adage that a picture is worth a thousand words is often true, and is more often an understatement. I'm kicking around ideas for my final project for this semester, and one of my ideas has to do with various controversial subjects. As I've mentioned before in other threads, I've done a bit of writing and public speaking on certain issues for which I hold very politically incorrect views. I'm considering putting some of these views into photographs. I'm positive that I will loose popularity points among a few who will shout me down and call me everything short of human. But I also know that there are quite a few who share these views. Right or wrong, these opinions are mine, and have been assumed only after experience and evaluation has shown me the way. These photos that I have in mind will move some to tears, some to anger, and may even inspire hatred. An example of what I have in mind is a diptic. Scene one will be a woman lying on her back wearing a skirt with her panties down past her knees with her shirt torn clutching a cell phone with an electrical cord around her neck. Standing over her, only visible from the waist down will be a male figure holding a knife in one hand. Scene two will be the male figure lying on his back bleeding from several holes in his chest still holding the knife in his hand his face covered with a ski mask. Standing over the male figure will be the female subject from scene one only visible from the waist down with a pistol in one hand with the slide locked to the rear and smoke rolling from the barrel. I'm not afraid of taking on touchy issues, and this one is one of the more tame ideas that I have (it is a scary place inside my head). I'm just wondering if perhaps I might be taking it too far for the sheeple in general to grasp.
