From a structuralist point of view, this imagery serves as metaphor for binary opposition, e.g. good vs. evil or day vs. night, yet this is not the sole line of inquiry. Inspired by the smoke signals of the recent Papal conclave which uses smoke as form of basic communication, this series is apart of a larger artistic pratice focusing on human relationships to nature. Fire is a powerful natural force that we harness for greater good, and it is the only Classical element, that we can create on demand, yet when out of control it has the potential for grave destruction. Contolled burns, is a visual representation of an inherit duality in how we interact with nature, symbolizing our desire to conquere and control nature, reminding us that sometimes we must fight fire with fire.  photo tumblr_n26jqxd21L1r0i205o1_500_zpsa5743dcb.jpg  photo tumblr_n26jqxd21L1r0i205o5_500_zps3a49e04b.jpg

My work was a response to the difficulty of self identification in a post industrial Wales. It reflected the problem of self value and worth in a new non self sufficient country where every corner and horizon echoed the past yet every TV and computer pointed forward. The youth of my generation were born into the void left over in a post industrial country and patriotic pride was hard to come by. So even though my images were not relevant to the lyrical and musical content of the band, the core inspiration was, e.g. drive to achieve, stepping above and beyond, waking up to your own potential, and doing something with your life were all lostprophets anthem calls. To summarise, my work didn't directly or visually represent the underground hardcore metal scene of the day but it was born out of the same rebellion against complacency and apathy that was inbred being brought up in a very grey poor town." - Richard James Oliver  photo Bakers_zps3256a15b.jpg

John Szarkowski called him the central photographer of his generation. Winogrand was known for his portrayal of American life in the early 1960s. Many of his photographs depict the social issues of his time and in the role of media in shaping attitudes. Winogrand's photographs of the Bronx Zoo and the Coney Island Aquarium made up his first book The Animals (1969), a collection of pictures that observes the connections between humans and animals. His book Public Relations (1977) shows press conferences, protesters beaten by cops, and museum parties. In Stock Photographs (1980), Winogrand published his views of the Fort Worth Fat Stock Show and Rodeo. At the time of his death there was discovered about 2,500 rolls of undeveloped film, 6,500 rolls of developed but not proofed exposures, and contact sheets made from about 3,000 rolls. The Garry Winogrand Archive at the Center for Creative Photography (CCP) comprises over 20,000 fine and work prints, 20,000 contact sheets, 100,000 negatives and 30,500 35mm colour slides as well as a small group of Polaroid prints and several amateur motion picture films.  photo womanandglobe_zps6e806905.jpg  photo Winograndgir_zpsa4fe7247.jpg  photo stoptheworld_zps80fb2524.jpg
