The Time's they are a changin'
The Times they are a changin' A visual chronicle of the Trump Presidency.
The former President of the United States, Donald Trump, better known for his reality television show and the art of the deal than his political experience or acumen, drove the national conversation via Twitter and questioned the veracity of traditional news sources during his presidency. To bear witness to this time in our nation’s history, on January 22, 2017 (Trump’s inauguration) I launched a series, In Today’s News. Acting as “photojournalist,” I responded to the contents of each daily edition (Monday-Saturday) of The New York Times by merging multiple images into a 5” x 7” hand-cut collage and posted on Instagram. The title of each is a headline or highlighted text from that day. For economical large-scale printing and immediacy, I print the work on common objects to make difficult topics more accessible and to encourage the viewer to consider the impact of the “ready made” president.
