This is my first blog entry and I realized that i can use that journal to talk about my photos and their meaning and my thoughts when i shooted 'em.[link]
I took this photo for this article [link]
I don't agree with the opinion expressed in that article, so i worked to take a photo on the edge of the two opinions. A sort of mediation: it's ambiguous.
As you can see the society, rapresented by the chess pieces, is divided in mainly 2 classes, king and queen against pawns. That's the starting point of my analisys and ideas. Chess is a sort of war game, but as you can see the soldiers, pawns, aren't fighting, so are they non-violent? May be. Or are waiting to be violent?
The slogan says: "I won't fight for you anymore". Does it mean that they won't fight anymore or will they fight only for themselves?
There is antiracism too: blacks and whites pawns against the ruling class. And there's also revolutionary defeatism: the pawns are not fighting each other, but they are unite not minding the army, against the black and white king and queen, and not white pawns against white king and black pawns against black queen.
That's it. In a single shot i explained my political views: class struggle, internationalism and - as you already understood - communism
Then i want to thank a lot all the favourites you gave me, all the downloads and all the comment, i really appreciated!
