Eugenics is a Greek word which roughly translates as “Well bred”. Eu = good, genes = born.

“The first person to use photography for the purpose of publicizing and promoting eugenics was Charles Darwin’s half cousin Francis Galton (1822-1911).

Art portfolio- my work

Just before the year was over a great joy was announced; there would be a family meeting, a joyous reunion!  When the time came for this anticipated gathering the woods were abuzz as the nice friendly giant proudly walked into the forest greeted merrily by the good fairies and ecstatic family pet.  The forest Faye entertained their kin by playing with fire as they trapezed through the night sky; so many came and told them that the guests enjoyed watching you.  Sadly, the nuclear family was alienated after their controversial rendition of ‘what’s love got to do with it?’Thank you for coming said the wicked giants as the evening drawn to a close and the overwhelming sense of ‘you can’t choose your family’ was left hanging in the air.  Walking out of the woods the artificial family just chuckled to themselves remembering that it’s all relative.
