I really dig the "Dogs in Cars" series. Those are awesome. The "Ala Mode" series is incredible!!! The "Anti-Guns Project" is pretty weak. I don't feel the anti-gun meaning to it. I get more of a pro-gun feel to it. When I look at the images, I am thinking, "Wow, that's a cool gun!" etc.

That is cool, MarKo! look forward to it.

The gun series is satire. Making the images a bit attractive and appalling all at once, I think is rather brilliant on the part of the photographer. One is faced with a moral dilemma by just by viewing them. Here there are children depicted in a very attractive way, yet they look vulnerable, innocent and somehow despondent. As a viewer I can only think that somehow, some way no good is going to come of this and tragedy is sure to ensue. When I see on T.V. these "gangsta" kids with guns looking all tough and thinking they are cool, I have the very same feeling. Sometime probably sooner than later some bad thing is going to happen- either the kid will shoot someone or be shot. The only difference is there is very little sympathy for a full grown "killer". Sometimes an adult with a gun is no smarter than a child with a gun.

Oh, and his travel photography rocks as well. :)

Great find, Jas. The ice cream and dogs in cars were a much needed contrast!
