Edward Burtynsky’s photography gives a fascinating visual commentary on the relationship betweens industry, landscape and people.

The work reminded me of photography documentary Manufactured Landscapes, before then realising that was because he made the film.

Burttynsky is well known, but if you haven’t taken a look through his work before it’s worth your time. Do it here.

In B&T. Awesome. Click the image to read up more about the campaign I’ve been working on.

A new campaign I’ve been working on is finally out and about. Exciting and scary. Biggest one I’ve done. So… I have something to ask you…

Live in Australia?

Going out today?

Going to The Body Shop?

If you answered ‘yes’ to all three questions. Congratulations! YOU ROCK… If you go to The Body shop, Australia wide, you’ll get a free tattoo when you support The Women’s Subscription Enterprise - an initiative of The Big Issue.

The Women’s Subscription Enterprise was started for women who want to work for The Big Issue but find it difficult to sell magazines on the street.

Instead these women will pack, wrap and post all your fortnightly copies of The Big Issue magazine.

But that requires subscriptions. And that’s where you come in. 

For every 100 subscriptions one woman is employed. 

Show you support by either buying a subscription (you can purchase a 3 month if you have commitment issues), or send a message of encouragement to the women currently working or wanting to work for The Women’s Subscription Enterprise (the best 100 will be printed in an upcoming edition of The Big Issue - so think of something cool) - and you’ll get a kick ass temporary tattoo. 

I’m wearing mine on my upper chest. I’d post a picture… but it’s all a little ‘HEY LOOK AT MY TOP BOOB…’

This is a month long promotion - so if you don’t get in today no big deal. Miss tomorrow… yeah I can understand that… But if you’re not in there by Thursday… I’m gonna… Well, I’m not gonna do anything.

Except cry.

And we don’t want that… do we?

A big cheers to Dean Gorissen who was kind enough to illustrate our lil lady. You can see more of his work here: www.deangorissen.com

Or if you want to read up more about The Women’s Subscription Enterprise and how you can help employ women visit: http://womens.thebigissue.org.au

If you end up going in and getting a tattoo I’d love for you to take a photo and send it to me at thecreativebridge@gmail.com.

And one final word - after working on The Big Issue for a year now I am a huge supporter of it, and I hope everyone at some point develops an understanding of how it all works.

(We’re currently working on the 2011 campaign to help that out.)

Like a lot of people I didn’t understand how it worked to begin with.

I didn’t know that a magazine costs $5 and vendors earn $2.50 per issue sold. I didn’t know that they’re actually bloody LOVELY people with stories and smiles. They’re really not scary. 

It’s great walking around Melbourne now and seeing the vendors I’ve worked with for photo shoots and having a catch up.

It’s an amazing organisation that I’m proud to be able to work for. 

My gushing is now over.

Glen Keane is an illustrator/animator with a large collection of location/life drawing/watercolours worth a perusal.
