About this project
Photographs by David Murphey. David is a professional photographer in Hawaii and a collector of politically incorrect vintage toys.
What is the Politically Incorrect Toys Portfolio?
Remember when we were kids and had the coolest toys to play with? Did you have plastic cowboys and indians, or get a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas? Boy, those were the days… Unfortunately, you can't find them anymore. They've become - politically incorrect.
This project is a social commentary on how toys have changed over the years and how we, as a society can change our views about what is or is not socially acceptable. "Some of the toys may be controversial, but that's the whole point" says David. "Sometimes we need a little tension to start meaningful conversations."
As a country, we've made great strides to equality, but at the same time we've gone backwards in some ways. We've lost the ability to laugh at ourselves and enjoy the individuality in each other. Wouldn't it be great if we could put aside some of our sensitivities (once in a while) and find humor in our differences?

Risks and challenges
All photographs for this project have already been taken, retouched and prepped for printing. I've sourced a company who makes custom folio covers. They already have the covers I'll need in stock. I also have all the printing supplies, papers and ink ready to go in my studio. You can be confident that if this project is funded, all the rewards will be produced quickly, be of the highest quality, and ship on time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
