Of Riches & Rags

A reading of the Financial Times

 

One of the characteristics of newsprint is its semi-transparency: there is always the chance that pictures and text printed on one side of the paper will show through and interfere with the matter overleaf. Thus when a newspaper is held to the light, text or images, printed on different sides of the sheet, sometimes collide, complement, undermine, cancel out or offer some chance counterpoint to one another, creating unexpected meanings. This work explores those serendipitous moments through the medium of photography.

The Financial Times was chosen because of its distinctive orange-pink colour, which has become emblematic of financial news worldwide.
