Crackheaded politics

Stalin with a photoshopped crackpipe - I am eternally fascinated by the incessant positivism portrayed in the propagandist imagery of such notable dictators as Stalin and Hitler. They are SO fabricated, it's absolutely astounding, so that when we were asked to add something to a pre-existing image so that its message or meaning was changed, I decided that desacrating something as periodically sacred as a photograph of Stalin smoking a pipe would have the most profound impact.
