First, there is a repetitive need to document collective miseries of peoples as the zeitgeist seems to be [again] an over-celebration of the individual as an aim of civilisation -from hedonism to esoteric. Second, verbal language as a means of communication seems to have come to an impasse. Attempt, therefore, with all the individual limitations, is mainly to investigate social pathology. Contrasts in material conditions, in mental lives of humans are gross, stark and disturbing. Hunger and poverty, to name only two forms of social ills, make atomised self an almost elitist concept [and its derivatives from hedonism to esoteric]. Additionally the conflicting agenda of the main agencies affecting our lives - the state, market and media make even the simple and direct statement of a social problem difficult. Now to communication. We apparently speak the same verbal language but actually ideas are laden with individual pre-conception. Thus more the elaboration of what is meant, more the scope for distortion of what was meant. Hopefully, the none-too-subtle pictures, sometimes with captions, go some way in statement of a problem.
