‘A Nobel Peace laureate who personally oversees a vast international programme of extrajudicial killings by remote control. Communities living under the “invisible shadow” of corporations. Millions fixated on screens, habituated to war and violence, subtly disenfranchised, instilled with a choking, all-pervasive conformism, and creepily detached from so much they should surely be concerned about, not least the destruction of what may be the only home we have in the universe. — My Peace News pictures are cries of protest against all of that. But they’re also acts of faith, crude lanterns left at the window in the hope that someone will see them out there in the dark.’
