Ill Presidente

The state of the ailing economy is the inspiration behind London-based still-life photographer Matthew Donaldson‘s President series. The series features US dollar bills, each depicting the historical figure bearing an illness or handicap, making a humorous reference to the economic crisis. Ulysses S. Grant with a thermometer in his mouth, Alexander Hamilton in a neck brace, Andrew Jackson with a cold pack on his head and George Washington sporting a respirator make for a comical look at a serious issue.

Donaldson is on the money with this series.
