Someone at the Gleaner photo desk needs a promotion for this one.

I didn’t give a toss about the 2012 Olympics. I honestly didn’t.
Bolt – that thing he does with his arms. Shelly-Ann and her chicken sausage ads. The Beast, Pierce Morgan, CVM Television, Carl Lewis memes. None of it.
So, I guess that makes me an unpatriotic twat now huh? Well, twat perhaps…
I didn’t want to offend you when I said I didn’t like your latest upload. I don’t know you but I have been following your work for a very long time. I have great respect for your talent, but these days as a viewer and as a woman, I feel the images are now more about a woman as an object, dispensible, meant to perch on the mantle like a trophy.
I used to feel like your images were high caliber journalism, documenting a darker side but finding ways to see the life and humanity in virtually anyone. Now I guess I am out of touch, changing as I age, pickney on my hip, fatter etc. I guess I don’t see you loving the female form anymore, almost as if she is burdening your lens.
I know, as you said, who asked you….but I have been on the other side of your afflicted yard long before facebook and all this other new business. I respect you enough to tell you what I think. I hate feeling like the dark side is consuming you instead of inspiring your gift. Peace and blessings stranger from afar.
And now here’s some Elvis.
