Fight the PowerSituated at the nexus of photography and identity, Mike Ivers' work is primarily informed by societal dynamics and power relations. His four year foray into contemporary art practice has culminated in a sometimes humorous, sometimes serious photographic project entitled 'Fight the Power': a powerful visual response to the current phase of socio-political unrest. Inspired by the iconic civil rights imagery of the 1960s, the artist has sought to emulate the monumental gestures of history's most inspirational leaders. Whether it is personal, national or global, the photograph has been an intrinsic part of the resistance movement. From Smith to Mandela to the Libyan rebels, countless numbers of people have put their fist in the air. It begs the question: have you?
