I am Slave

Made in 2010 “I am Slave” directed by Gabriel Range is “based on the real-life experiences of Mende Nazer,the story unfolds as twelve-year-old Malia [later played by Wunmi Mosaku], daughter of champion wrestler Bah,is abducted from her Sudanese village in the Nubar Mountains by pro-government Arab militia and sold into slavery to a woman in Khartoum,who beats her for touching her daughter. After six years she is sent to London,where her name is changed,but her miserable life of servitude continues. Her passport is taken and she is told that her father will die if she goes to the authorities. Fortunately she meets a sympathetic person who seems to offer her the hope of escape and reunion with Bah,back in Sudan. For all the film’s optimism an end title states that there are around 5,000 ‘slave’ workers currently in Britain.”

I truly recommend this film for others to watch. Everything is portrayed so well and it is very effective.

T-shirt slogans

The long awaited photographs of my current project which I’m planning to have as a very big series. At this present moment they don’t have a title. Any ideas?

I copied these images from paintings. And from this I took these negative texts on the T-shirts and rejected them to say the text is wrong and that the people the text refers to are beautiful like the western world considers these paintings.

Vermeer- The Kitchen maid

Ingres- The source

Once this project is complete, I won’t include the paintings along side them.

Making more slogan T-shirts

I’m making more T-shirts for my slogans project. Some of the slogans I’m using are found texts and the others I made up myself. I can’t wait to show you the end results.
