Protester Portraits, Marc Fischer

€12.00
Tax included.
DESCRIPTION

Protester Portraits is the latest in a series of publications Marc Fischer has created using details from discarded press photos in his own collection. In 2021, he purchased 1,000 press photos contained in two auction lots in a quest to find more material for the exhibition and book Protest Grim Reapers. This trove yielded exactly two photos for that project, leaving him with the task of finding interesting uses for the rest.

For this short booklet, Marc Fischer selected photos of a number of costumed or performative protesters, framed in the manner of portraits—though most were part of larger multi-person compositions originally. He has retained the events or causes associated with each protester, as well as the year each photo was taken. He left out the photographer and newspaper credits, however, as these photos—and the way they are used in this booklet—deviate quite heavily from their original function.
