Discarded Drug Baggies from the Streets of South London

south-london-drug-baggies

Collected by photographer Dan Giannopoulos

“For the past year, I have collected discarded drug bags from the streets of South London in order to map public drug consumption in the capital. These bags are not only interesting pieces of miniature street art that most people will pay little to no attention to but they also carry the uneasy trace of an illicit activity. The pinpoints of dependency, of criminal transactions, of ways of life that are often well hidden. They are unseen events made visible.

These are a small selection of the near 150 bags I have mapped so far. My family are disgusted with me.”

The Aspen Wall Posters

aspen-wallposter-project-thomas-benton-hunter-s-thompson-for-sheriff

A collaboration between Hunter S. Thompson and Thomas W. Benton in 1970-1971. The two-sided posters were used for Thompson’s campaign run for Sheriff of Piktin County, Colorado in 1970, and featured art by Benton and writing by Thompson outlining his platform.

If Hunter S. Thompson had been elected, changes would’ve included:

  • Legalization of drugs on a recreational basis (although profiteering dealers would be prosecuted harshly.) Thompson did make a concession on the drugs issue – he promised that if elected, he would not eat mescaline whilst on duty.
  • “Rip up all city streets with jackhammers and sod the streets at once.”
  • Change the name Aspen to Fat City. This would prevent greed heads, land rapers, and other human jackals from capitalizing on the name ‘Aspen’. These swine should be fucked, broken, and driven across the land.”
  • It will be the general philosophy of the sheriff’s office that no drug worth taking shall be sold for money. My first act as sheriff will be to install on the sheriff’s lawn a set of stocks to punish dishonest dope dealers.”

The Return of Classic Rock by Kevin Gray

From Rob Ford’s startling admission to Lamar Odom’s made-for-reality-TV drama (and let’s not forget that Girls episode), it seems crack is back—and in some very high places. Yesteryear’s killer drug is now a dalliance for affluent, upwardly mobile types, some too young to recall its devastating history.
