Photographic screen-print on paper, 31 x 23 in.

I began researching the earliest photographic representations of places that are historically symbolic of democratic principles. One of earliest known photographs of the Parthenon on the Acropolis of Athens was a daguerreotype taken in 1839 by Pierre-Gustave Joly, shortly after the announcement of photographic process. Since the reflective daguerreotype plates were difficult to be reproduced, printmaking techniques were utilized to replicate them.

Thinking about the dissemination of mythologies to propagate stereotypes, I'm keen to hack the patriarchal visual language of the historical archive.
