Iconography: 1 and 2

Iconography: 1 and 2

It’s a sunny afternoon in England. Neil Young is singing ‘Powderfinger‘. As he sings I find myself in an American landscape; I’m armed and ready to defy the odds … ready to shoot even …

It’s strange: the allure of American culture. It’s strange to live through the myths and images of ‘America’.

From: ‘Notes on the making of the English psyche.’

Footnote: The photograph shows a still from the BBC’s coverage of a farewell to the Velvet Underground’s Lou Reed.
