I just saw this on Facebook and thought it was, in its simplicity, one of the most powerful images I've ever seen. Please share.

That’s some really great simple art.

So unlike most “art” these days.

I learned growing up in a family of artists that the real challenge is the simplicity. When I grew up and was educated in the business/marketing fields, it was one of those rules that the experts knew but didn’t share.

Simple is powerful.

It’s a good image, but what is the meaning of Coexist. Is it trying to get people ‘pro and con’ about abortion to ‘just get along’?

It refers to the mother and child coexisting together....IOW, not murdering the baby.

Amazing graphic. I hope it goes viral.

Coexist with the life within you. Look at the heart symbol, it identifies the connection.

Trying to get the mother and her baby to “just get along”, rather than her murdering it.

That is lovely, a “why not?” for abortion advocates.

Simple is powerful.

I like minimalism but it has to convey some emotion or message. This one does.

On the other hand there is this crap which holds the record for the highest price ever paid for a photograph at over $3 million.

As an artist/photographer, that irritates me.

Thanks to all three of you. Don’t know why I didn’t think of that at first! I once lay flat on my back for 4 months to save a baby from miscarrying.

Where was that taken? I think I live near there or perhaps it is a generic view.

Yes, I’ve seen your work. It *should* piss you off.

"As an artist/photographer, that irritates me."

No kidding. Almost all of the 19-20th century "artists" should be irritating as well. Their pos paintings are sold in hundreds of millions. For instance this piece of crap

What irritates me are the pretentious liberal art critics who drive the prices up based on the fact that the artist tells them what they want to hear about their work.

I personally have no interest in telling people how my work makes me feel and would rather they be free to interpret it for themselves. Just this morning I dug this old photo I took out of my files and "painted" it in photoshop. I took the photo several years ago and this morning I decided to play around with it and like it this way too. (In fact I ordered a print for framing)

I much prefer the card players over the Gurskey photo. Its not for me but it could at least be legitimately considered art.

I actually kind of like that and heck, if the photographer can get top dollar, good for him. I usually do concert photos, nothing too artistic, just a hobby. One of my recents.

This one can reach the those on the far left that others cannot. In Madison Wis, a leftist haven, this needs to be prominent. It should go on billboards. It is great!

It may be because it strikes a symbolic note of The River of Life, on a universal subconscious level. At least that is what it did for me, but then again The River of Life is very important to me. Likely those that value it so highly have little conscious knowledge about The River of Life, though.
