This will be an ongoing series wherein I meditate on the shaping of public opinion and popular culture through the ancient and recurring practices of censorship, information control, destruction of knowledge and cultural genocide.
As the series progresses, I will burn books selected for the purpose of either causing joy or dismay as you witness their destruction. Through these photographs, perhaps we can better understand the motivations of those that wish to contain our freely-thought ideas — politicians, religious leaders and other demagogues.
