About the work: Slow N.E.W.S. in Fascist Times is currently in-production as a series of slow newspapers that are released periodically during this Trump Reign of Terror. As a living part of my daily practice it represents the current climate of instability and uncertainty, begun the day Trump took office on January 20, 2017 at high noon. The content is journalistic photographs I find in our daily news diet of Trump and his team doing their constant work of running this country/world into the ground. Either through the dismantling of US government agencies by selecting corrupt industry executives and representatives to take power, or writing executive orders that eliminate entire agencies, or whatever the cancerous catch of the day is for them. I am watching this with eyes wide open, in semi-paralysis and certain shock. To process the news, I shoot the photographs with my iPhone (eye-phone) and then in a very basic way deconstruct them until they become something else. This series will continue for the duration of this xenophobic, claustrophobic, homophobic and anti-everything beautiful and alive and miraculous administration.
