Backstory: To explain a quote with another quote, here is Toffler again: ‘Science fiction is the sovereign prophylactic against future shock…You can use all the quantitative data you can get, but you still have to distrust it and use your own intelligence and judgment.’ And so, like Blixa Bargeld of Einstürzende Neubauten, we are waiting for a future worth having…thanks to too many of MLK’s guided missiles and misguided men.

Locale: Clifton

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC
