I love Bob Staake’s work! This iconic image (and many others) he has done comes from an incredibly refined mind and thought process. In his words, “I try to find a way to really, really boil down and distill a big, complex issue into the most simple image that I possibly can. The simpler the better. And it’s difficult to do.” Difficult is putting it mildly – very few can simplify complex issues the way Staake does – his interview is very informative about both racial divide and how his iconic covers come about. Thank you #BobStaake for your brilliance!
