Have a Phat Tuesday With Nanette Lee, Get Lifted With Israel Nash, Play the Game of Game Of Thrones or Pod Down With Brave Boys.
“Porn Poverty,” is what they’re calling the images by Italian photographer Alessio Mamo.
Mamo is known for doing social and political photography. He was inspired after reading about how much food we waste in the West while 2.1 million Indian children die of malnutrition. In his “Dreaming of Food” series he took photographs of Indian children in front of a table with fake food and then asked them to close their eyes and imagine whatever food they desired. His use of poor children as props, however, has been widely criticized.
We should all be more thoughtful about the pics we take and the things we post on the internet.
On a lighter note, it looks like you’ll have plenty of noncontroversial things to post about on this very exciting Tuesday night.
