Shapes 2

By Catherine Bruce

The “Hip Shots” series of photographs feature images that were grabbed “on the fly” with little regard for framing or focus. The object of the exercise is to create dynamic images, not perfect ones. With this shoot-from-the-hip method the more frames exposed, the better the chances are to come up with something interesting — a somehow related series that may be arranged as a blog post.

Shaming Baltimore’s Under Armour — Episode Two

November 13, 2015

THEY’RE BAAAAAAAAK . . .

. . . and this time The Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters has a huge 3-D blow-up cartoon image of a wage-choked carpenter, being throttled by a corporate fat-cat! Meanwhile, you can check out the earlier post (August 21, 2015) by scrolling down a bit. At that time, the workers had only a large banner and a  small take-home flyer explaining their position. (Click on the flyer, below, to read it now.)

Now, WOW! —  visual dynamics!

Baltimore’s Under Armour Shamed

August 21, 2015

For awhile now the Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters has unfurled an attractive—and very bold—banner to respectively protest some of the hiring practices of Under Armour. You can see the banner most work-day mornings at the company’s global headquarters on Key Highway Extended, in Locust Point. While you’re there, you may want to have a chat with the workers, and pick up one of the flyers with more details about the disbute. Or, you can simply click on the copy of the flyer at the end of this post; it’s well-designed, very short, and to the point.
