Eyehategaod- I wouldn’t say its a “realistic depiction of America.” America is a big place. We get a bad enough rap. I don’t see this where I live, then again we don’t even have “Hardee’s” in Michigan let alone Kzoo.
I love the photos though. It’s obviously somewhere’s troublesome reality.
The leftmost Colonel is my favorite.
The star, his posture is evil, the cross, the kid, the balloons, the dark vehicle, all disturbing. Great capture of a nightmare.
frightening part is that ronald is the least frightening of all these photos.
I agree with Partick, although clowns are everyone and their mums’ phobia, the scary part is that these images are seen in a jovial light because we all recognise what they represent. I think what Susana depicts is our loveless understanding of how we are ruled by consumerism and the children in these images will grow up knowing nothing else.
…..but I might be wrong!
