"...young girls and boys getting company logos sprayed on themselves to become corporate billboards for seemingly no reason at all."

I thought the reason was because these girls wanted a piece of the image that these logos/companies sold. Similar to buying any piece of clothing with a huge logo on it....

congratulations Deanna.

Garry is right.I don't mean to say I don't buy Toy Merch but that spray painting is the same deal as wearing a shirt with a logo on it.

Garry and Satanus,

You are missing the point.

Buying clothing is one thing.

But going down to the beach and getting a logo spray painted onto your skin of a company you have never heard of is another.

These people are not 'fans' of these companies, they are just getting them painted on because it was offered to them.

It would be that same as if YOU went to the beach, saw a line of people getting TOYOTA logos sprayed on them, and thought, 'I want one of those!'

Why be a billboard for the rest of the day?

That is what I am asking...

Hooray Deanna! I can't wait to get a copy!

I understand ed, but when I walk around with my Toy sweatshirt and board aren't I a billboard? Why is it different for when someone buys it or when it is spray painted? Is the book mocking the people's want to fit in or against advertising? I hope it is not for advertising because I really like my Toy sweatshirt and I wouldn't want to get rid of it because the guy that created the company doesn't agree with some forms of advertising.

if you guys ever make a toy machine billboard, you better believe i want to be on it.
Posted By: scoot on July 6th, 2007 at 07:07PM PST
I think Satanus should just appreciate the good photography.
Posted By: The Floyd is Pink on July 6th, 2007 at 07:30PM PST
Yeah I'm sorry I should appreciate that Deanna is a good photographer. Sorry for any inconviences.
Posted By: Satanus on July 6th, 2007 at 07:32PM PST
Satanus,

I appreciate hearing different viewpoints, so never be shy about voicing yours.

I just feel that my point was misunderstood.

The difference between you wearing a Toy shirt is that you like Toy Machine and agree and/or stand behind the principles of the company. (you bought the shirt)

These people are just getting a logo on them because it looks cool, while the company scores a perfect advertising space: The body of a hot 16 year old girl. Who isn't looking at that?

It would be like you getting handed a free rollerblading t-shirt, and you wearing it around all day just because it was free.

What is wrong with that? Nothing, if you like rollerblading, but as a skater, I imagine you don't, so wearing the shirt would be counter-intuitive.

Understandably, I don't think these girls/boys are thinking in a political or advertising/selling out type of way. But maybe they should.

Who fights with The Tempster...?

But good viewpoints gentlemen...

And Scoot, I'm way down with your idea!

Seriously,appreciating this.I love photography.
Posted By: Shapes on July 7th, 2007 at 11:47AM PST
I agree Ed.

If Deanna's photos get kids thinking about corporations and what they represent and how they make their money etc... then it will all be worth it. An informed teenager is a dangerous one.
