Drafts of Nelson Garrido´s work censored by Flickr

The Autumn Cover of Fuel Magazine features the work of Nelson Garrido, one of the most important Venezuelan contemporary photographers, whose drafts for his most recent body of work Como enseñarle arte a una liebre muerta (Homenaje a Joseph Beuys) – How to teach art to a dead hare (tribute to Joseph Beuys) were erased from Flickr.

It is amazing the way censorship works. Sometimes and under certain circumstances a boop, a cock or a nipple become the center of discussion and moral debate for institutions, media and the government. Our own body becomes a bizarre image when presented naked, aroused or enjoying sexual pleasure. But censorship does not work that fast and intensely when images of war, exploitation, brutality, cruelty or pain are featured to scare audiences or keep them ¨educated¨.

Art and popular culture both produce images we consume and stay in our minds, different purposes and narratives make a huge difference between a  contemporary work of art and a work of  commercial photography, both can feature nipples, boops, cocks or blood, but the text underneath and who they serve, make the big difference.

Next censorship could go to hate speech, racism, sexism, gender violence, corporate greed, religious fanaticism, state terrorism or the morning news, maybe then the joy of our own bodies will become a liberating and growing experience for all.

The 2010 Summer Cover of Fuel Magazine is Damaged

DAMAGED BY Richard Brooks is the body of work we have chosen this summer to be featured as the cover of FUEL. His worked seemed clean direct and had this kind of tragic beauty that caught our eye.

DAMAGED by Richard Brooks, is the body of work we have chosen this summer to be featured as the cover of FUEL. His images seemed clean, direct and had this kind of tragic beauty that caught our eye.

Richard says: ¨I used dolls to represent victims of people trafficking. The dolls are resin based and, like the people they represent, fragile. The full series starts with a set of black and white portraits that speak of the ideali…sed image of the person who is then damaged by being trafficked.I chose a map as a device to address the issue of people trafficking, influenced by a couple of Guardian articles – a 2008 article included the key phrase “down your street” and a 2009 article included “across small towns and large cities”. The repetition of the map and the smaller images is indicative of the recurring nature of the problem of human trafficking. I was shocked to discover that there are currently more people enslaved by people trafficking than at the height of the transatlantic slave trade.The colour portraits, represent the damaged individuals.The prints are deliberately in glossy, reflective laminate. This was chosen so that the work interacts with the viewer, with the viewer glimpsing something of their own reflection. This added another layer to the work that speaks of our shared culpability in the suffering caused by people trafficking.

Other contributors participating in the summer issue of FUEL are:

Ingri Haraldsen, Claudio Parentela, Alvaro Sendra, Gracie Weinrib, Lavv Photography, Kara Seaman, Whathetreesee, Volathevist, John Broadley, What Surreally Matters, Studio Zlamal and Levi Miller.

FUEL MAGAZINE : The Power of Arts 2010

Five months ago and after being tired of reading and watching printed and online visual magazines, where the hands and thoughts of an editor clearly state a line of thinking, we decided to create a space where artists themselves could be the actual editors and think for themselves what to publish as a personal decision and as an act of sharing.

The content would reveal what the real art world is today, what the real artists want the readers to see and read and what is done when participation is open. As a collective construction FUEL MAGAZINE has reached today 365 contributions from 60 photographers, artists, illustrators, designers, painters etc.

The nicest thing about FUEL is that it is entirely made by participation, those who put their works in our pages, choose carefully what to offer to themselves and to our readers.Completely visual, FUEL is being constructed by all of us and let us know more about what the real art world is today, than any other specialized magazine online.

Come and participate, think well before adding your content, and then give us all and give yourself the best that you got.check out the current content, grab a cup of tea, enjoy and take you time to think about these images at

Greenscreen Photography for LifeDimension Germany

Greenscreening is a technique frequently used in the movie industry that makes possible to put people in any background just making a studio session. Now you know why superman can fly.


It was fun to attend the Genzyme Pharmaceutical convention in Barcelona and develope a Greenscreen Photo session for their participants.

The game was simple but fun. Each participant was asked to write a few lines about themselves on a blank paper. It should express something about their life, family, work, interests, etc.

During the lunch break participants would visit the portable greenscreen photographic studio we installed at the Avenida Palace Hotel, where the convention was held. One or two pictures with their best smile were taken a total of 35 participants. before going back to the conference, their opinion was asked about a series of landscape photos in our laptop, so they would choose the one they like best.

Our post production team took care of putting it all together, print it and frame it so the Genzyme participants would take home their best smile at their favorite landscape in a wonderful picture.

Working for Momentum McCann in Stockholm

Momentum McCann Stockholm organized the whole programme and took care of every detail. The event was held at SIDA headquarters a very modern complex in uptown Stockholm. SIDA´s interest in collaborating with developing and European countries where gender equity is still not a reality (most of them) raises many questions about our perception of what daily violence really is and its consequences and many ideas for understanding tribes and groups of our society.

It was a great experience to work for the SIDA (Swedish International Development Agency) Seminar on Gender Based Violence held in Stockholm last September 12th. The event gathered more than 15 speakers from around the world including the Swedish Minister for International Development, African Ministers and lecturers as well as American and Latinamerican country representatives where this topic is a very strong cultural issue.
