The More You Know...

Pieter Hugo - Vuyiswa Kama (2003)
[From the poignantly uncomfortable "Looking Aside"]

I realize before even beginning to write this post that it may strike you with the sentimental tone of a public service announcement. Large portraits of worn flesh smiling way too large are backed by anthems of presumptuously simple assertions to stay strong. You may anticipate that this could only lead towards the tilted head of a cancer patient insisting right before commercial break to squeeze in that she is not a "victim, but a survivor" - followed by a shooting star sparkling about the more you know. But there are few words necessary beyond "sucky" to describe cancer and few bad samples of Daft Punk.
