"In such a world, an entire human being is condensed into a tweet. Imagine a stream of dead avatars floating down the Perfume River in an eternal Year of the Monkey"

The computer is dangerous because it shapes your capacity to understand what’s possible. The computer is like an apparently submissive servant that turns out to be a subversive that ultimately gains control of your mind. The computer is such a powerful instrument that it defines, after a while, what is possible for you. And what is possible is within the computer’s capacity. And while it seems in the beginning like this incredibly gifted and talented servant actually has a very limited intelligence — the brain is so much vaster than the computer. But, the computer is very insistent about what it’s good at, and before you know it — it’s like being with somebody who has bad habits, you sort of fall into the bad habits — and it begins to dominate the way you think about what is possible. … [Counter this] by doing things that are uncomfortable for it to do.

Desire to push the world in a certain direction, to alter other peoples’ idea of the kind of society that they should strive after… No book is genuinely free from political bias. The opinion that art should have nothing to do with politics is itself a political attitude.
Animal Farm was published on August 17, 1946. Here is George Orwell on the four universal motives for writing and creativity, including #4, political purpose.

This was a major journey for Walter, who probably hadn’t much left his hometown until now. I imagine that a lot of the early photos in the album were meant to be taken home on leave or after the war, to show what an incredible journey it was.

Here, Walter captures some of the landscapes along the way. Since this is on the spread with the donkeys, I suspect that at this point they were traveling to their post.

If you haven’t already, please check out my Kickstarter to turn Walter’s photo album into a beautiful print book. It’s fully funded, and I’d love for you to see it in print too!
