Self Defined Brief - Butlins
These are just some old postcards of Butlins I found on the internet. I'm thinking of using them as inspiration for my prints on Abu Ghraib. The american soldiers, once they had reopened the prison, said the only worry they have with the place is that it is so nice inside the inmates won't want to leave, as living conditions in the prison are better than normal life in Iraq, which is ridiculous! So I want one side to be like one of these postcards, as if it is a great place to live, and then the other side will be the reality. The complete opposite to this.
