Reevea Steenkamp died 14 February 2013
Annie Dewani died on 13 November 2010

Both were young. Both were beautiful. Both had vivid lives ahead of them. Reeva could have become a judge in the High Court. Annie's life was open before her, full of hope.

Both died because they became involved with rich guys with mental health problems. Both guys were well off and well respected. Both were ruined by their competitive, power obsessed, gun happy, money worshiping culture. Both men ended up pawns of their way of life. Neither behaved as a completely free man and both tried to do what their cultures demanded of them.

What they did not realise was that their women - Annie and Reeva - would be the ones to pay. In Homer's day the Greek people would have said something like, "Humans, beware the implacable goddesses protecting women. Beware their wiles which will draw you into sexual traps that will spring tight the moment you step into them. They will mince you without your even knowing what is happening." In our day we know that today's much vaunted culture is unnatural and dangerous. People who think money is everything and guns will protect them become so messed up that terrible things can happen to them.

Meanwhile Anni and Reeva, the bright, shining, smiling young women have just stepped into the wider universe, shining down at us as a reminder that, where power and money rule, the innocent are always the ones who pay the highest price.

We are passionate artists and art lovers with wide ranging tastes and interests. Our long range project is the creation of 'aegian' as an aesthetic hermaphrodite, trying to express the many facets of their being.

While his better half prefers to remain mysterious until she has decided how to start our journal, Mr A admits to having a London degree in Botany & Zoology and owning a succession of film and digital cameras. I am the man behind the lens, so there may not be many images of me submitted. We love beauty and I search for it amongst the mundane backgrounds of everyday reality as well as at fabulous gardens like the ones seen in some gallery pictures.

You wouldn't believe the rate at which I can take photos. I could fill a 16 gigabyte card and flatten a camera battery in Kew Gardens alone in a single four hour visit. Search on 'Kew' in the gallery and you'll see it takes up nearly ten percent of the gallery. Here is an exploration tip: the best and most diverse folder in the gallery is 'SF Fantasy'. It has five sub folders that you can't even see without visiting the main folder. They are 'Fictions of my own', Myths and Legends', 'Films', 'Music links', 'SF short stories and novels' [including thriller and spy fiction] and 'Fantasy short stories and novels' [which includes horror and the supernatural]. The first two do what they say on the tin. The other contain links in the artist's notes to whole albums, songs, tracks, films, books and stories wherever it was possible, or a good review where it was not. For instance, you can see a whole film AND hear the full album sound track from here A Playground Set For The Haunting Of Julia by aegiandyad .
