Anne's Daily Encounters

Image of the past week

Today I watched the Dutch weekly program of discussing politics and there this photo by Nina Berman, made in Washington DC, just before Capital Hill was raided, was presented as "the image of the week" and the other striking image from the film "1984" (based on George Orwell's book 1984) was shown too. Striking similarities in reality and fiction and on both occasions  "Fake News" is the big theme.

I'd not been aware that George Orwell's book "1984" became again a bestseller soon after Trump was president elect in 2016 ~ to my opinion, the photographer Nina Berman made a striking image from reality when she saw this and probably saw the film's image in her mind;  I want to share that here.
