President (II)

These images are a continuation of my series about the United States Presidents.

Each United States President has become a kind of historical marker, defining a time, both historically and culturally. As an outsider, I have found it deeply compelling to see these powerful leading figures surface again from history, often unexpectedly and juxtaposed against the chaotic mosaic of present day life. In my continuing search to orientate myself within American culture, I have felt when photographing these sudden Presidential appearances, like I am somehow retrieving the memories from an Amnesiac.

My intention with this new series is to eventually have a record photographically of every American president and giving myself a psychic history lesson in the process.

I will post on this blog further encounters as they occur and a part one of this series can be found here:

  1. I know that sometimes a bad critic is better to continue improving, but I can´t say anything negative about your actual (and past) work, keep on shooting!!
