HOLY SMOKES

Comparing and contrasting strong symbols

Still a work in progress, I cultivated these images to suggest a similarity between smoking and religion. Especially drawn to the iconography of each, I enjoy the tension that is created by combining aspects of the two. Through this visual tension I hope to compare and contrast any resembelances such as; Cause of death, Advertising, lifestyle, and subscription.
