There are times when the theme for the WA will challenge all of us, sometimes our idea might challenge what our core beliefs are, but those images can be very striking. I remember back to two taken by Mark Fadely of a homeless man sleeping on a bench, and one of a dog in a shelter that was awaiting being euthanized...they are haunting, thought provoking and reminders of the often cruel world we live in...at least for your image our brain can reason that this scene was setup...but all too often it could be reality.
Travis; Normally I see the assignment and start planing. But in this case the idea's where so vulgar, insensitive, and crass that I hesitated. I remember Marks image well as it made me ill to think that but for the grace of God goes I... I grew up extremely poor and lived in neighborhoods where homeless were common. Art imitating life can really sucks. Jim
