Pictures are a vital tool in righting social wrongs

Trickle down of wealth is a myth…  The rich just keep getting richer!

“The trickle-down effect meanwhile is exposed as a myth: what is occurring instead is a tremendous transfer of wealth from the poor and the middle class to the rich.”  Marco Bohr, Visual Culture Blog 2014

From an essay “The death of Neo-Liberalism”

Artists need to be strong agents to halt injustice wherever it occurs.  Understanding the power of images is an essential tool to effective communication. 

Julien Gremaud, from the series Thatcher is Dead, 2014
