Louis Porter

THE ANATOMY OF BUSINESS (2012)

In 2008, the crisis had just started, Louis Porter came into the possession of the photographic archive of a financial newspaper from the early 1980s. The archive comprised 4000 photos and other sorts of visual material with regard to financial institutions, businessmen and business news. Porter used the images as a starting point for a second series, made in the same places but thirty years later, in a changed financial world. The result is a sampler of “gestures” and motifs that form the heart of the photographic vocabulary in which the world of high finance and international trade is captured.
