suppression of minorities by oetzy suppression of minorities by oetzy
For me it was a tryout with something new and I decided to use this title :

Suppression of minorities.

I know, it is a difficult topic - however I wanted to let you think about it.

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-01-30
The idea to express the wrongings in human society is not a new concept for photographers, but suppression of minorities by ~oetzy takes it one step further by utilizing a childhood candy to deliver his powerful message. It is the ability to think creatively that sets this photographer out from the rest. Be sure to check out the rest of his gallery. ( Suggested by gfx-sheep and Featured by Moonbeam13 )

Red gummy bear, clear gummy bear, they all come out the same in the end. Besides, the clear ones are icky. Pink is the best, its hard to tell the difference between the pink and red though, you have to hold them up to the light.

wie , wenn du etwas nachtraeglich als print hochlaedst kommt es erneut in die watchlist der watcher ?
und wie ist das eigentlich mit den prints , muss man da bestimmte dimensionen hochladen oder wie geht das ?

ja, musst die bilder auf bestimmte seitenverhältnisse zuschneiden oder den Rahmen anpassen ... aber dafür gibts tools [link] die einem dabei helfen .....

und ja, wenn ich eine Printversion hochlade erscheint das bei all meinen watchern als neu, dann steht aber das alte Datum dabei ....

wurscht.. ich mach's einfach jetzt ;)... also das bild is hammer - das thema sowieso (und ich finde es sehr gut, daß du gerade den farblosen zum außenseiter gemacht hast!), die beleuchtung (dieser helle schimmer bei den bärchenfüßen!).. wunderbar! :)

an interesting topic... This almost reminds me of dark humor since this isn't the first time gummy bears have been used in this metaphor.

I think this would have been a lot stronger if the white gummy bears had discriminated a colored one

MMMM how did you ever set this up and not eat them all. If i did this i wouldve had nothing left to photograph :D

Very good concept and i like the lighting. Ive never seen gummy bears with facial expressions like these, but i like it.
