this is the image that pretty much got me started into digital collage - i’m always saddened when thinking that lynching photos are the last remaining images of those victimized by it. my goal was to gather as many photos as possible and find alternative ways to focus on the spirit of the person instead of the atrocity done to them. it’s a balance, because you never want to lessen the impact of the inhumanity visited upon them and at the same time you dont want the artistic alteration to have more significance than the people. the name of the series was to be called ‘mega-morphosis’ but this collage was the only transformation that came close to fulfilling my intentions.
i did this back in 2003 with bootleg photoshop after trading my $300 djembe for an old imac g3 (the one with the colored plastic shell! - sigh, good times… i had no idea what the hell i was doing…)
Did you ever realize how much your body loves you? It’s always trying to keep you alive. It’s making sure you breathe while you sleep, stopping cuts from bleeding, fixing broken bones, finding ways to beat the illnesses that might get you. Your body literally loves you so much. It’s time you start loving it back.
Slurs are not just “bad words”. They’re part of systemic dehumanization of entire groups of people who are and have historically been subjugated and hated just for being alive.

“A new study has found that at various times the British have invaded almost 90 per cent of the countries around the globe. The analysis of the histories of the almost 200 countries in the world found only 22 which have never experienced an invasion by the British. Among this select group of nations are far-off destinations such as Guatemala, Tajikistan and the Marshall Islands, as well some slightly closer to home, such as Luxembourg.”
