Notting Hill Carnival

© Robert Graves and Didier Madoc-Jones

Like a Richard Hamilton photo-collage, Notting Hill Carnival is a visual composite of 20 separate images. A chance discovery of a shot of a young woman applying sun cream (shown at bottom left of the image) catalysed the idea of transforming and uniting London’s carnival audience in blue sunblock. Like the Australian public health advice to ‘Slip Slap Slop’, perhaps a similar Government campaign to protect ourselves from sun damage is not too far in the future?

    Following the surprise victory of President Cameron in 2016, the world’s societies are being remodelled completely, with Avatar as their template. Blue Na’vi body-paint has become mandatory, the Earth is officially known as Gaia, and “unobtainium” is now the only permitted energy source, all other fuels having been denounced as evil and completely banned.
