Today's topic is the drug war in Rio, Brazil. Photography was obtained from The Boston Globe's Big Picture 11-29-2010 and is being used under the fair use act. Even the Boston Globe is hesitant to present Rio's message boldly, instead they maintained the allegoric representation in the photography.
The photojournalists in Rio, Brazil gave us a deeper insight as to what is really going on in their country. BUT as with all of my pages the purpose here is to illustrate the Artists' Code so YOU will have the power to see the truth. Unfortunately, many countries are still suppressed and their photos are the only way to tell their real story. By using the artists key you gain a better understanding of their message, and/or cries for help. This opens the eyes of you the reader, which I assure you will enhance you life - it's only when we reach outside ourselves do our purposes become clear. What better way than to read a metaphoric message in a bottle that you uncork, unfold and decode?
Below are a few clues and their meanings which I hope will help you build a solid symbolic language. BUT please proceed on your own because there are many clues NOT explained here. Keep in mind, that even with a margin of error, you can still understand the message the photographers are trying to release through their work
We are covering 2 photos from different photojournalists in Rio, Brazil.
The first photo is to present the clues and the other photo from the same piece to confirm these clues. This confirms the code on two plains; first, by giving us more than one source to accurately assess the problem presented, and the other to prove the consistency and universal qualities of the code.
