Dark Times / My Life Since #45
Why use The New York Times?
The media and journalism are under attack since number 45 was elected. His repeated declarations calling some of our country’s most prominent and well-respected news outlets as “fake news” have serious and dangerous consequences for the U.S. and the world. Freedom of the press is a cornerstone of our constitution and our democracy, what little we have left of it.
Because I live in New York State, I decided on January 1, 2017 that every morning I would take a photo above the fold of page 1 of the New York Times with my iPhone.
Using the app SketchBook on my IPad, I have been making artistic and political statements on the issues that speak to me the most. To add deeper dimensions to my work, I add to the front page photos, I’ve taken or found on the internet as well as emojis, words, drawings, etc.
