An Inconvenient Truth

Look at these images. Captivating or plain vapid? If you subscribe to either of the views, look closely again. You will find that these images have a deeper meaning underlying their facade. A meaning which portrays today's growing divide between the rich and the poor, the world over. The choice of subjects and the comparative price tags intelligently depict the clash of materialism and impoverishment. Hard hitting and thought provoking. An inconvenient truth, indeed.



But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams

William Butler Yeats
