PRESS: IN THE FLESH
Here are some images from my recent series featuring portraits of employees from The Buffalo News printed on top of collages of newspaper.
'Press: In the Flesh' is portrait series featuring photographs of all the different characters involved in the 24-hour business of print journalism including all the editors, writers and photographers that make a daily newspaper possible.
What makes this body of work unique is that the subjects are printed directly on top of the newspaper they contribute to, adding another dimension to the image that not only speaks to the individual, but infuses them with the product they work so hard to produce.
As we embark deeper into the digital age, the security of the printed word continues to waiver, which will allow these portraits to act as an artifact in the future of how newspapers were once produced.
