WORLD LEADERS

The photographs depict the personality portraits of the world leaders of the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic. The pictures are captured with a camera from the monitor when these leaders were addressing the nation, giving coronavirus speeches. The expressions in these portraits show how the leaders have responded to this critical situation.

 

This body of work is not only a record of the historical moment; these sophisticatedly out of focus portraits also represent the virtual relationship between the people and their leaders. Observing these portraits from a certain distance is required to get clarity, and the more it gets closer, the more obscure it becomes. 

 

The work is best experienced in large scale prints.
