    • This is awesome thankssublocked
    • What's the big deal? Sub-par shots with an infrared filter applied. Wow.MarleyMarl
    • ok i get this guy is the shit but what makes these images so great? does he have secret presets that we can never unlock?HijoDMaite
    • serious question not talking shit.HijoDMaite
    • I am with HDM, we've all seen a billion images like this. I love his work, going back ages, but this doesn't look like what I'd expect.formed

    • Looks like selective desaturation.
      Lovely.

    • Not a fan of this kinda stuff.sureshot
    • agree, the beauty in these shots is all in the filter. the landscape is impressive but the composition is nothing special at all.microkorg
    • Fucking stunning.nthkl
    • Japan?nthkl
    • What makes me appreciate this is, the more you look at the image, the more it changes, you notice something different. Not just in the details, but the whole.robthelad
    • Full spectrum photos remind me of old sci-fi illustrations. I dig it.OP31

    Racist...yea or nay?

    I'm nay.

    • Let's just say that the racist comments about the caricature of Serena are over the top....go read them. I'm sure that Rupert Murdoch really gives two fucks.utopian
    • could have made his point without making the lips so big I'd say._niko
    • but overall it's fine_niko
    • The comments have nothing to do with the image...they are just idiotic. I'm talking about this in isolation.BusterBoy
    • Meanwhile the light skin blonde with big tits player in the background actual looks like this. https://i.imgur.com/…

    • Everything's racist, sexist and whateverist nowadays.NBQ00
    • The depiction of her facial features and her body posture seem racist to me. General theme does not.sarahfailin
    • ya a bit racist.pango
    • Nay. But only just. A bunch of yea just because it's a Murdoch rag. His justification for the opponent was 'that's how I remember her'. FLOL.MrT
    • I see a temper tantrum portrayed in an unflattering caricature. If you see something 'racist' here then we're fucked... it's sad how 'trained' the PC world is.PonyBoy
    • nailed ithotroddy
    • Actually everything these days is people complaining about how everything is racist.yuekit
    • It's not the worst thing I've seen, but you have to wonder about the thought process of someone who draws this and clicks send, without the thought everyuekit
    • crossing their mind that it might be offensive to black people. More likely the thought did cross his mind and he didn't care.yuekit
    • the underlying message is not about race. so it's not racist. And sometimes an illustration is just an illustrationhotroddy
    • I don't see it as racist. One of the key principles of a caricature is to exaggerate a feature of the subject.Continuity
    • And, I'm very sorry to say, she's got a massive mouth to start with. So, if anything, it's just the artist having picked the obvious, low-hanging fruit.Continuity
    • Caricature always treads a fine line. And it can be both at the same time - not intentionally racist but genuinely offence-causing to some. Nowt wrong with thatFax_Benson
    • Highlighting a feature specific to a certain person is slightly different to highlighting a feature specific to an entire race / ethnicity etc. JustFax_Benson
    • have a think before you publish it if you don't want to cause a fuss. unless of course you do.Fax_Benson
    • Black guy here... It's fucking racist. Black people have been portrayed like this for years and we get the underlying tone implied - And we dont like it.necromation
    • ...Also she lost to another black woman, so why do we have a blonde haired woman on the other side? it's the thing you dont see... We do.necromation
    • She has big lips, and caricature like this are over exaggerated representations.set
    • Anyone who thinks this is racist is an insecure prick that needs to feel offended in order to give themselves some kind of sense of worth and superiority. GFY..set
    • I understand the uproar. Caricatures legacy as a tool to oppress is huge. I don’t think the intent was racist though.thumb_screws
    • This was a better way to satire the incident https://m.betootaadv…thumb_screws
    • It's not either or. Insisting that it is when it isn't is where all the outrage comes from.Fax_Benson
    • Set, you funny. I know some insecure pricks that would love you tell them that. White guys tellin us black folks what we should and shouldn't find offensive lolnecromation
    • Free speech, motherfucker. I'm not telling black folks, I'm telling everyone. This is only racist if you decide it's racist.set
    • That's your freedom to be offended and upset for no real reason though, I guess. Caricatures have ALWAYS accentuated features. How the fuck is that racist...?set
    • Also, are you saying having big lips is a bad thing? I don't get it.set
    • It's just not lips, set. It's also the kinky hair but you just can't see it from your position of privilege.soundofreason
    • what's wrong with kinky hair!?set
    • Also, necromation, were you suggesting that your friends would become violent with me because I hold a different view point?set
    • But thats, exactly it... You don't know.
      There is many a paper, an article, a fucking video covering this topic. JIM CROW... do some reading.
      necromation
    • That's not something I'd be proud of admitting.set
    • Exactly!
      You disappoint me, set.
      You disappoint me.
      soundofreason
    • The fact is also in an Aussie paper... My girlfriend is Greek aussie and they refer to her as a WOG (greeks, italians)... Wtf. it all fucking stinks of racismnecromation
    • I wasn't sure about the lips, thinking them a bit Tintin in Congo, so I and Googled and learnt a bit about the likes of Ollie Harrington and Morrie Turner.Nairn
    • Wog or wop?Nairn
    • The lips in Tintin and blackface/ Jim Crow are ovals with no definition. The lips in this caricature have lip shape.
      Do yous work in the visual medium?
      soundofreason
    • Was there a point there, sor?Nairn
    • Yes. Get hooked on phonics.soundofreason
    • You're right that I cannot fully understand the oppression that many have been throughset
    • but the fact is, being oppressed is not an excuse for being offended by anything and everything. All you're doing is creating more division and separation by...set
    • ... by suggesting that this is any way racist, and this woman, because she is black, should be treated differently. No caricatures are ever flattering. Ever.set
    • wog - Australia has a huge problem with racism. I've been several times - Seen indian's refered to as P word, Lebanese called "lebbos"necromation
    • She has big lips and curly black hair. So those features are accentuated. How the utter shiny fuck is that racist?set
    • at first I didn't found it racist but looking into details for me it's definitely racist.oey
    • ... My girlfriend herself says racisms is pretty bad as whole and with that as the undertone of the nation its pretty easy for this stuff to get through...necromation
    • cause this doesn't even look like her or what a caricature of her would actually look like. it's just a stereotyped general portrait of black people.oey
    • The only way it can be is if you're looking to be offended, and choosing for it to be racist, and somehow even suggesting that those features are a bad thing...set
    • @oey
      Please tell us more about those details.
      soundofreason
    • I would bet money... No artist here or in the US would have released that cartoon!necromation
    • we know it's about her cause of the entire context and clothing. except that nothing here tells me it's Serena.oey
    • Last time I checked big lips and curly black hair are awesome. Caricatures are never fucking flattering. EVVVVEEEERRRRRset
    • I can understand people who don't find it racist to some point.oey
    • but if this character was dressed differently and in another environment nobody would guess who it is. so...oey
    • besides, it's also easy for someone on the privileged side of history/society not to see it as racist as we don't have any clue what is being victim of racism.oey
    • The P word is a completely different thing in AU. It doesn't have the british racist weight behind it until recently.thumb_screws
    • @set
      The only way to solve this is to photoshop your face onto it.
      soundofreason
    • it's not about big lips being beautiful or not. you are totally missing the point set.oey
    • Australians are pretty naive when it comes to racism. A lot of the time they just dont understand the weight of the terms or where they originated from.thumb_screws
    • But black people do generally have big lips. Is that racist to point out a fact? One that isn't even derogatory?set
    • Caricatures accentuate features. That's the point you seem to be missing. You're choosing for it to be racist when it doesn't need to be anything of the sort.set
    • @oey
      I would like to see the details you mentioned exposed and this image dissected in a separate post.
      Who's up for it?
      soundofreason
    • First time I've been dragged into a qbn 'debate' in a while. It's fruitless. Carry on being offended if you like, you're only hurting yourself, ultimately.set
    • What you're saying is that a caricature artist can only take the piss out of someone's features if they're not a minority. That's ludicrous.set
    • hey set, i don't feel offended, i just disagree with you still i totally understand what you mean about caricatures. and how am I hurting myself?oey
    • If anything, the ones saying this is racist are the ones being racist, as you're suggesting she should be treated differently because of her race. Av summathatset
    • and why has he whitewashed Naomi? to emphasize the stereotype of black people being too emotional? just asking...oey
    • the "coon" cartoon ya know?oey
    • Caricatures accentuate features, but surely at some point it crosses the line into racism right?yuekit
    • So many caricatures of white mean make their noses really big - as a white man, I don't give a fuck, I know we have big noses.shapesalad
    • so I expect a black person to equally see that yeah, on average they have big lips and in a caricature that might be accented. Try not to give a fuck and deal.shapesalad
    • *white menshapesalad
    • The hypocrisy of this whole thing is humorous to me. Here's an example, our darling KJ Rowling... The cartoon is entirely left open to interpretation...set
    • i.e. old Tintin comics like Nairn mentioned above. So it comes down to the depiction, and this is definitely borderline.yuekit
    • ... so the only one reducing Serena to racist and sexist tropes is JK herself. https://twitter.com/…set
    • it's not racist to caricature a black woman AND it's legitimate to question why this pic was drawn as it is. Nobody is going to 'win' this argumentFax_Benson
    • I do understand the racism thing, if you absoloutely must fish for it, but where is she finding sexism in this? That's quite impressive.set
    • I was about to ask about sexism too, now that it has been established that the cartoon is racist.soundofreason
    • I agree, Fax.set
    • @set
      As a recent convert into seeing the cartoon as racist could you make a post explaining it in detail for those still on the fence?
      soundofreason
    • Would you guys agree that this is racist?

    • sexist cause it depicts women as not mature, look what laying in the floor next to her.oey
    • another detail for the racism is that the caricature of Naomi is as a white person and so it accentuates the contrast of behavior according to races.oey
    • Sexist also because the umpire is sitting in a tall chair (phallic & position of power) talking down to Naomi.soundofreason
    • I'm with set. What we are arguing about is what we have been educated to project onto the image. Caricatures are import in our world and we need more IMAOmugwart
    • Caricatures should NEVER be faltering, Having this illustrations in away forcing a fear of immortality in the elites. its a visual remembrance of their actionsmugwart
    • This girl is a spoilt brat. She was forced into this at a young age and is the only thing about her life, she cant take loosing and this image is a messagemugwart
    • to all of us not to become like that. Its rude. its crude but that how it is. She should be ashamed of herself. This pokes fun at that and hopeful reflects thatmugwart
    • I love Caricatures, it is bullying but then again I grew up with Spiting image and Gerald Scarfe. Look at his works and say they don't depict legacy of peoplemugwart

    • https://s14-eu5.star…mugwart
    • I saw a documentary of Mr Scarfe and he did call it bullying as you had to boil down all their characteristics and poke fun of them.mugwart
    • Illustrations are vital to society, event these. The boil an scene/event down to one image that everyone has to decipher in a spit second.mugwart
    • So the problem is that we are now educated to be so triggered & that is used to control large groups of people. We have projected this onto this image.mugwart

    • One of the animators from Adventure Time did something like that http://www.ghostshri…PhanLo
    • good luck buying land in vancouverArsenicPants
    • You could set it up and have a gang fight with Granville Island to see who is the most pretentious.face_melter
    • Arsenic. That's why I need more people to join. Lol. I would really love to manage a space.pango
    • YES!notype
    • Do it, I heard house husband's are all the rage there too...robotron3k
    • the council model is the same in vancuver as in budapest so you should be able to find state owned property what's before the demolition.sted
    • sometimes they don't touch these buildings for years what you can find out, so the utilization is important for them.sted
    • are you speaking of squatting sted?notype
    • noo not at all, i'm speaking about how to get a municipal property cultural purposes. if you do it right you can get it for (almost)free.sted
    • *for cultural purposes :)sted
    • talk to oye, I believe he's part or was part of a commune of sorts._niko
    • Haha, I have a friend doing exactly this now. I'll send him thisset
    • LOL remember when people had the same idea using old factories in Brooklyn? Growing veggies in kiddie pools on the roof next to cement manufacturing plants?caterpus
    • Then the curators of the space just charge the rest of the commune more in rent so the 2 or 3 of them can live for free.caterpus
    • I think there is great potential in this idea to create a retirement commune/community, of sorts.Gnash
    • My exact thoughts when I first moved into a warehouse many years ago, gnash.detritus
    • ^ it's a great concept. better than some old-folks home. pool resources. hire care if needed...Gnash
    • i'd love to buy an old summer camp. turn cabins into sleepers, communal kitchen & common spacesGnash
    • ...and then start murdering people?detritus

    • If "creative and artists" are leading a real estate development, it will fail before it starts.
