I like it, it's different, and makes me think about it. In the age of the selfie portrait, this is refreshing.

If you abandon that, you could photograph a football and call it Beckham, and then find yourself getting sued by Rooney for invading his privacy and/or using his image without an existing contract.

It's why anarchists are such dumbeffs.

Of course as a work you can't grasp its true significance on the web as much of its impact is lost with the reduction of size. The work is 160 x125 cm!

The other factor to consider in judging this work is its versatility....it could equally be entered in a landscape photography competition. It is an insightful exploration of the mental landscape of the artist's grandmother's mind.

The intellectual property argument however is a photographic competition restricted to serious photographers whose cameras have been purloined by other species for the purposes of taking selfies.
