"To consider money purely in economic terms is – in my opinion – too narrow a view."
Pete Jones | Photography
travels through the world, Pete Jones looks at what is behind the money. Employing a special
technique to photograph banknotes he creates poetic images that refocus the viewer's attention and reinterpret the meaning of money.
MAKRO MONEY brings things to light
that you do not notice in everyday contact with the banknotes.
Tiny details, exotic landscapes, political and historical events, important personalities,
kings and despots or colorful fish.
"... regardless of whether people live in a democracy, a dictatorship, in socialism or capitalism –
and regardless of which religion they exercise, everything is traded and paid for with money.
This thought made me begin to look more closely at world paper money and to photograph it.“
