The Memory of History documents the use and abuse of the past in the context of recession. Photographed across ten European countries at the height of the 2012 Euro crisis, it records the way dangerous narratives of the past were disinterred by the difficult events of the present.
This photograph shows a detail of the sign of the European Central Bank, part of the so-called Troika formed to manage the consequences of the European debt crisis to manage the bailouts of Greece, Cyprus, Ireland and Portugal.
Inkjet printing (sometimes known as giclée) is an art printing process, where tiny dots of ink are sprayed through a series of nozzles on to paper. The result is exceptional detail and a wider colour gamut than is possible with traditional photographic C-type prints.
