The Memory of History “ECB” – 16 x 12 inch inkjet print
European Central Bank from the series The Memory of History (2012)
Inkjet print on lustre paper, signed and dated by the photographer.
Paper size 16 x 12 inches (40.6 x 30.5 cm)
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.
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.
