A Series of Informational Fold-out Posters
One of the most revolutionary forms of media that emerged in the 20th century was the photograph. Tranforming a culture and history informed by only written word and the documents it inhabited, the photograph was a new, succinct way to say a thousand words. A Series of Informational Fold-out Posters is a publication that documents a process of providing typographic treatment to two photographs, one from the early 20th century and its contemporary counterpart. Through typographic articulation, the series investigates different ways in which a photograph can express those one thousand words.
