    "Huntress with Buck" wins national portrait prize!

    Anyone else see on the BBC website that the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize has been won by a photo of a girl on horseback with a blesbok(?) she has just shot across the saddle.

    Ok , seems it was taken in South Africa and the girl is American but hell it's great that something earthy has swept the art world.

    Will there be any backlash .... from PETA for example

    Apart from it being a dreadfully contrived photograph (notice the reins), I love that a photograph like this can win a prize.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    What do you guys think about the shot placement, is that the entry wound from a front-quarter shot, if so - well done - or is it the exit wound from a perhaps slightly too 'stomachy' shot?

    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"
