Those People” I see my digital creations as stories. This one is a little complicated. At the time of making it, the only idea in my mind was to come up with an image that had a graphic feel married with a Surrealist style. so I set about positioning various elements from images of several different buildings.
However as usual the Muse had other ideas and I was only tipped off when Jacques Brel’s songs “Les Bigotes,” (The Bigots) and “Ces Gens La,” (Those People) began playing in my mind.
Bigots frequently give themselves away whenever they use the term “Those People,” which is meant to categorize the group that the put down is aimed at, as “less than.” The surprising thing is that the people who refer to others in those derogatory terms, unfailingly brand themselves as exactly that. Those People ....... Those People who fail to understand that bigotry will always show itself despite, and especially because of their own words. That outer displays of self righteousness can never effectively conceal bigotry. Those People who call others “Those People,” are those people who are locked in a prison of their own making.
