More About Orwell: 1984 told in photographs

The first 369 words of 1984

The "Big Brother" syndrome does seems to be alive and kicking.  Check this one out:  1984 told in photographs.  Let us know what you think of this visual project of 1984 here at The Things You Can Read.

It started as a way to get to know my new camera, and to ensure that my expensive investment wouldn’t end up covered in dust six months after I bought it, neglected after the initial honeymoon period of frantic snapping. I’d bought a Canon EOS7D for myself to celebrate the end of my PhD, and received a damn fine lens as a gift. The 1984 photo project became a behemoth that challenged my creativity and my tenacity.-alekskrotoski.com

"War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.”
-George Orwell,
If you were to tackle such a project, what novel would you capture in visual images?  We'd tackle To Kill a Mockingbird.  Hey, have you read 1984?  What are your thoughts on "BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU"?  Again, let us know here at The Things You Can Read.

Happy Reading and Happy Blogoversary to
The Things You Can Read!
Believe In Truth, Beauty, Freedom, Love, and the Power of Books!
