Cultural Capital, silver gelatin photgraphs, editions in Euro and Swiss francs, 2009
Contact-printing currency reveals both the front and back as well as the inside of these sophisticated paper objects.

Each photograph is for sale at face value and the series can be printed whenever I need more of it, just like in other monetary systems.

Haven't artists always had an economic crises?
