FEATURING: Plenty Among Equals

close up detail of color photogram titled: Plenty Among Equals

This entire series began with a single spark, loaded with the call for equality, justice and dignity.  A woman in her might, breaking loose the chains of oppression above her head.  Printed in 1919, one of the first stamps, as a free and independent country at the end of WWI.  Cleverly printed only a couple millimeters high are the stamps value on each of her sides, 50 and 50.  A simple expression in a call for balance as equals.  

Though out this layered collage, are the ideas, costs and cancers of an old country in a the throws of a young democracy.  Ironic a 100 years later our contemporary moment finds us still thirsty for such a blended tonic.   50 / 50 does sound indeed delicious enough to share with my family.
