    The idea is very good. The message is clear (to me anyway). The final picture is not strong enough for that message.
    sorry

    I don't like the text, but it is still pro.
  • Peter. Gau 04/19/2007 5:55

    Have seen better shots of this type here, the cigarette in front is burned out at the top and that bothers me. Also find the crop on the left not so good.
    A good picture but not outstanding imo. Sorry, -

    photo is so-so
    but
    photo + text = potent image
    and I am an image guy ...
    this image succeeds for me, thanks Sarah!

    Good one Sarah. Thanks for bringing Jitaru's images to my attention. Fantastic creative and thoughtful series.

    I think I see the point, that is, Tobacco Barons exploitation of the third world. But maybe wrong. Judging the photo, its not good enough for the Gallery.

    I dont like the crop, the lead fag is badly positioned, and it is blown out at the top. Could have been a great deal better.

    all is said, no for me too, sorry

    Marcel Duchamp (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcel_Duchamp) argued that the idea of a work matters more than its physical representation. And it is this statement, more than any other, which underpins all Conceptualist art which may not be recognisable as art. A pile of sweets on the floor may be art or a word written on a wall. It may only exist for a moment, and survive afterward in notes or photographs, which document the work without being the work of art itself.
    This quoted, I skip this image (sorry, pro-voters!) as having secondary aesthetic value.

    Where's the "WOW" effect you always yearn for, Sarah? I join the others here and wonder if you see values that none of us do here.

    Without the words, I would not have any idea what the message is in this photo. I think a photo should say the message without type. I can appreciate the effort in "saying" something with the image though. The shadows,especially in the background are a little too haphazard for me. With this kind of photo I believe that it should have more directedness to it, messagewise and also graphicwise. I'd like to see more tonality in it. It seems to lack some contrast in that respect. As a purely aesthetic image, it doesn't have alot of appeal to me. Sorry, but i have to say Contra.
