Descriere

This edition is an illustrated satirical perspective on truisms. The edition was prompted by author and photographer Marques Vickers’ aversion to meatloaf as a culinary disaster from his youth. The author has humorously expanded his distinctive observations towards a broader scope of social phobias, issues and dilemmas.

This edition is a cautionary warning against taking for granted or tempting the fates that lurk on the periphery of mundane existence. Vickers notes: “Our fortified sand castles are vulnerable to breeching by irreverent reality.”

Irony and subtlety enable proper satire. The shrewder and more subversive the message, the greater the likelihood it will be misunderstood or unappreciated. His photographic lens reinforces commentary captions in an entertaining and disarming visual portrayal of lifestyle choices and realities that pose paradoxical contrasts.

Among his continuing topics of assault include racism, sexism, nationalism, poverty, addiction, privacy invasion, societal evolution, icons, vanishing idealism, excess and clichés that often summarize human behavior. His succinct and sometimes biting messages offer an offbeat perspective to customarily simplistic assumptions. In many instances his opinion appears obvious. In others, his conclusion may not have even occurred to the viewer.

In his preference, Vickers observes, “The pragmatic soul realizes that life is a sequence of compromises, good and flawed intentioned acts and a collective peanut jar crammed tightly with diverse individuals”.

Vickers photography offers him a platform to focus his aim beyond superficiality with a notable absence of malice. Readers may even equally realize and/or agree with him that there exists no allotted space for meatloaf within a finely honed lifestyle equilibrium.
