Let Me Die In My Footsteps

Let Me Die In My Footsteps

Striding Out

 

The most personal set of images on this website is titled “Let me die in my footsteps”. This derives from a Bob Dylan song about the cold war, detailing how people’s lives and politics are being driven by fear but the singer refuses to go in to hiding. Anyone who lived through 9/11, especially those working in the finance world could not fail to be affected by the events. Politicians have used those events to try and spread fear and to try and justify the erosion of hard won freedoms. The pictures are inspired by Dylan’s words of defiance:

I will not go down under the ground
 ‘Cause somebody tells me that death’s comin’ ’round
 An’ I will not carry myself down to die
 When I go to my grave my head will be high
 Let me die in my footsteps
 Before I go down under the ground
