about

The mind set of some coffee table book/art photographers is a matter for concern. They're not all tarred with this brush though.

lyrics

Wah Wow (But is it Art?)
Life becomes a portrait
Feel no passion, feel no pain
Sell the image of a victim
Staring blankly from a frame
Steal the souls of nameless children
From terraced back-street slums
Let the vultures land near babies
Steal the moment, then just run
Just what is it that the pictures try to say?
Will they make a difference
At the ending of the day?
You can cover gallery walls
With your visual skill
As you suck your subjects dry –
Will you ever get your fill?
So, catalogue new anguish
Change your subjects every year
There’s no romance in someone’s hunger
No romance in catching fear
That’s etched on haunted faces
Or waifs with wide-starved eyes
To bolster reputations
And carry off the prize
Just what is it that the pictures try to say?
Will they make a difference
at the ending of the day? Y
ou can cover gallery walls
With your visual skill
As you suck your subjects dry –
Will you ever get your fill?
Life becomes a portrait
Feel no passion, feel no pain
Steal the souls of nameless children
From a terraced slumlord’s lane
Catalogue new anguish
Change your subjects every year
There’s no romance in someone’s hunger
Win those prizes catching fear
Let the vultures land near babies
Steal the moment, then just run
Feel no passion, feel no pain
