August 12, 2013 § Leave a comment
An artist, writer and educator of great conviction, it is very sad to hear of the passing of the remarkable Allan Sekula.
Here are some links (here and here) to words and images in relation to an individual, whose relevance as a practitioner seems more significant as ever, particularly for dealing with subjects like labour, global capital and economy when, as he stated, ‘they weren’t sexy’. He will be greatly missed.
