  1. Wow, great photographs! To me this would be “foto denuncia” in Spanish. Don’t know the exact term in English. I guess it would be something like photoreport or photojournalism? I mean photos that report situations of human injustice, which is what you have done here. I think both photos are very graphic. From my perspective this is the great paradox: the American Dream represented with Disney and the homeless people—many of them black like the man of the second picture—, more and more citizens suffering from increasing poverty. I don’t know what Homefront The Revolution is. Isn’t that related to one of those awful shooter video games that only promote violence among people? Could this be a reaction against that, in order to make a real revolution that fights this injustice?

    • To me, as you hint, this is an indictment of Capitalism that takes the complaint against it as repressive and shines it back on the citizens it seeks to take advantage. Truth has no traction and the citizens lie down in poverty and eventually die. What is interesting here is that the parasite eventually kills the host. Capitalism is a lie as evidenced here. The Revolution will not be televised ever. The People must know and understand that they are being lied to if they are ever to break free. Trump, for example, is it’s figurehead, but not its only one, where he is mendacious. He wants to make America Great Again, except that sending jobs out of country, for example, directly destroys it. Making enemies that were never enemies in the first place takes more butter from the table to make guns.
