Portraits From Postcards

Artist Amir Zainorin created a striking series of portraits from postcards based on images found on currency throughout the world.

The postcards are pinned on to the wall while the rest are laid down on the floor. This gives the work a mortality or temporary status in which it occupies the space for only a period of time, just like a system, an empire or a person, [Mao, the Queen, and Washington]. After some time they are remembered in history books, on paper currencies, posters, stamps or on a postcard.
