A picture is said to be worth a thousand words, but is the converse true?
Words, in and of themselves, are just words, and individually they can be seen as beautiful, ugly, or neither. The same can be said of a collection of words, be it poetry or prose, but when gathered together in a randomised but harmonious and aesthetic grouping, words can be something altogether different. Removed from all notion of conventional structure, of grammar or syntax, they become something entirely different.

Photography T-Shirt

A simple, straightforward statement. 'Photography' is the main attraction, but as in life, it's surrounded here by a collection of buzzwords and minutiae that are either incidental or of great interest and significance, depending upon your level of involvement in the Art.

Whether you pursue it as a profession or a hobby, wear your dedication to the medium on your chest as a high-quality pure cotton t-shirt. Available in a variety of colours, sizes and styles (long sleeve, v-neck, 'Girly Fitted'), further information is available at www.redbubble.com/people/wordigrams/t-shirts/3568454-2-photography-t-shirt.

Now also available in dark colours:

The Declaration of Arbroath

The Declaration of Arbroath was a Scottish declaration of independence, sent to Pope John XXII, in April 1320. With 8 Scottish Earls and 38 Barons as signatories, it was a passionate plea for Scotland’s independence from England, following Edward I’s claim some 15 years previously.
