Annakin Skywalker

Annakin Skywalker, originally uploaded by SierPinskiA.

I liked this photo because it has so much to say about how uncomfortable we are with ourselves in our present time.

Some of us - such as the young man in the photo - project ourselves into a time that never was, the imaginary world of Star Wars. Others project themselves back into a romanticised world that never was, which is what 'The Victorian Image' is all about. This photo rather nicely juxtaposes the two.

Aren't we lucky that we have the time and wealth to be able to be uncomfortable about the time in which we are living.
