PLEASE DO NOT BUY THESE SHIRTS.
I know this doesn’t technically qualify as an artwork, but I need to keep spreading the word.
For those who don’t know, I’m fighting with a few companies in Thailand who are illegally producing my images of Sabina and India and selling them on tshirts. I’ve decided to try and push the message to NOT buy these shirts by mocking up a poster for you all to pass around if you want to help me out. Dangerously Dolly, a very talented photographer, has also had some of her work stolen and thus we’ve got a double bill flyer floating around now, so be a doll and help us out – if you see these shirts anywhere on etsy, ebay, in clothing stores or you name it, PLEASE report them or ask the sellers to remove it immediately and demand their money back from the wholesaler, or even report it to the local police and have the merchandise seized.
The less people are inclined to buy the shirts, the more the companies will get the message to stop printing them – supply and demand, it makes sense. No demand, no reason to supply.
Let me say again, they are NOT approved by myself, DD, India or Sabina, and we do not get a single cent of any sales. We are not the only photographers who are being ripped off so if you see any images on tshirts floating around that you recognise, PLEASE tell the photographer! They may not know it’s happening to their work.
I sure as hell didn’t.
Please spread the word. Thankyou.
