THE PERPETUAL PROMISE OF A REPEAT PERFORMANCE: ILLUSTRATION IN PATTERN MAKING / IDN MAGAZINE

PROPAGANDA: NO POWER WITHOUT IMAGE CONTROL / FOAM

“Since its very invention, the medium of photography has been avidly mobilized for propaganda purposes. Although the contemporary propagator has since changed character, the premise remains the same: the visualization of an ideal reality.
