A scene from Fisheye Placebo.

Night Version

This image was inspired by a free Breadley Manning protest I participated in. We were a small group of about 20-30 peaceful protesters met by an overkill of riot police. We dissipated peacefully to avoid arrest but the image of facing against a roll of riot police remained in my mind.

For those not familiar with Bradley Manning, he was the one who leaked the Collateral Murder video to Wikileaks. The video details the slaughter of innocent Iraqi civilians and journalists by American soldiers. Amongst the injured were 2 children whose father was killed. When the journalists' families asked about how they were killed, they were lied to. For revealing the true casualties of war, Manning was put into solitary confinement and tortured without trial.

It's amazing how the mood or message of an image, as assumed by the viewer, can change with just a few subtle differences such as lighting or palette. Great work!

Very good, and revealing artwork. As increasingly tyrannic the United States is becoming however, unfortunately this barbaric abuse of "authority" is becoming worse in all corners of the globe. I'm sure you already know this, but here are a few links from sources Corbett Report & Larken Rose to help understand this further, and perhaps what to do about it.

Would you be offended if I told you that I'm actually a military veteran and I approve your message? A lot of soldiers are coming back very dissappointed with the police state. Because it looks like an occupied country. They just came back from an occupied country! Why would they want to see it home?
You can still be loyal to the good people you served with in the army, and the army values and be angry with what leaders have done. With thier abuse of soldiers, the fact that they could have avoided some casualties (including our own soldiers') but chose not to. The fact that so many older higher ranking officers get away with sexual assault because all the other older officers feel sympathy for them. Yeah, I had a paralegal that was a friend in the army. That's the one thing that pissed him off most, was that so many older men got away with sexual assault because of time and rank. Meanwhile, if one of us lower enlisted simply got in a fight, a DUI, or disrespected somebody, it was hell to pay. Not that I'm for fighting, dui, or disrespect, but still. To many whiners being punished like rapists and too many rapists being punished like whiners. And we all get fucked by the big green camo weanie.
I got tired of some of my fellow soldiers when we were in Afghanistan. I made a point to be nice to my Afghans I was gaurding (they were working on FOB Lagman). Me? I only yelled at them once because I thought we were about to have a damn wreck. Other times I told them "good job" and 99% of the time I shared my food with them. And they shared it back. Some people said I was too nice.
Then this toxic troublemaker comes along, who used to be my friend, and he starts mistreating the Afghans. He starts yelling at them and hitting them just because he can. It's not the worst possible thing (Rarity pulls out a couch) but it's damn unbecoming. It is so sad and pathetic. So weak. Ya know, we're here to win hearts and minds, and when you act like dicks to arabs for no reason, you prove all our enemies right. 
People started taking bets on which asshole would get the columbine treatment for being such an asshole to people. 
Damn Kim, we have enough terrorists. We don't need more. We're taking bets on  you getting shot. 
I'm not ashamed of being in the army. The experience opened my eyes to things that are going on. I wasn't combat, I didn't get shot at. I was an intel weanie. But I learned things. Not classified things. Things about life. Things that taught me how to be loyal to America as an idea, not a government. Loyal to the army as an idea, the values, not as an organization. Loyal to myself not like I'm perfect, but that I need to know the truth. 
I'm not ashamed of my battle buddies. And I used to like the police. 
But a lot of soldiers and veterans are waking up to the evils of the police state. We're being taken over, on multiple fronts. Veterans have a reason to hate the police state, because not only does the police state pick on them after they served their country, they are put on the terror watch list along with muslims, homeless people, certain Christians, and homeschooled kids. Anyone they think will be political dissenters. 
I do NOT like the existence of FEMA camps. Something very sinister is happening to the country. I'm not above believing that the reason why the police have become so mean and militarized, why the government gutted gear and equiptment from the military and gave it over to the police? I think we might be being invaded, and the invaders are invading us through the police force. That would explain the sudden rise in numbers, military gear, and hostility. 
Somebody prophesied the UN or whoever would invade the US while American soldiers were an ocean away in one mideast war after another. This was 20 years ago. It seems true. And that same government that supplies stuff to the police supplies weapons to ISIS and to Drug Cartels. I'm not picking on Obama, this has been happening for a long damn time. Divide and conquer?
The fact that the police have also been having cross training with military, including Israel, who as we know isn't the most ethical country and has been known to stab America in the back? Yeah, ya wanna know what all those dollars we send them does? They send IDF to cross train and "Israelify" our police to be extra brutal, paranoid, and trigger happy. Isn't that unconstitutional? I call treason, and having the person brought to justice as such.
I know you might feel like because I was raised christian, lean conservative, served in the army....I'm part of the problem. But things change. Unlike others who have similar beliefs to mine, I hate the police staet and I hate Israel, for what they've done to the American people, both civilian and military. I don't even think most of the police are native born Americans. 
You decide for yourselves. But the militarization of the police, the arming of terrorists and drug cartels, the purchase of ammunition, coffins and FEMA camps? Something dark is about to happen in our country. 
Thank you for protesting.

Wow...
You know... I live in Russia. And today is a hard time for my country. That's not because of economic crisis, conflict in Ukraine or your, western folks, sanctions. That's because we are wasting our freedom: a freedom of speech, partially a freedom of business and we barely keep a freedom of think. We have rulers who looks like leaders but actually they lead us the way we didn't ask them to lead. Most of us didn't ask them to lead us at all.
But the most horrible thing about all that is that actually nobody cares. At least, it looks like that. Even I, a man who thinks he has an open mind, never been in any kind of protest. Maybe that's because I feel fear. But mostly my stirring life don't let me do something that society needs from me. I bet that describes anyone in my country except maybe a couple thousands of people in all the country.
So... Your work... It's inspiring. Thank you for that. And keep it that way.
From Russia with respect.

Although I am ignorant of the context, I find something beautiful in both of these pictures. So I fave them both because they're beautiful, and comment on them both with the same comment because I'm lazy.
