WINNER ‘news’ 2006
Nowadays, news is covered instantly on the Internet and on the talk and news shows, and expanded upon in newspapers and newsweeklies, making it increasingly difficult for anyone to say anything original. Yet thats what Mark Ulriksen managed in this Watch Your Back Mountain cover. Published when the movie Brokeback Mountain was about to be released, Ulriksens image evokes both the smugness of a vice president implicated in catastrophe and the cluelessness of a president incapable of stopping him. The image shows a couple of hapless chaps, prisoners of their fate and unable to alter the course of events they have set in motion.
