Ian Spiers: Humiliated, Angry, Ashamed, Brown

A tale of a photography student trying to complete a class assignment at a public place in Seattle and the troubles that come his way--the big question, why him? A good look at the paranoia and racism of post 9/11 (in)security procedures.

That's sickening. I'd read a news report about this, but the statement of the man himself really brings it gut wrenching home.

Yeah--definitely messed-up, but I am impressed how the author/artist takes the rage and turns it into art/reflection that we can learn from--transformative experience--power of imagination/creativity
