„Fotografieren ist einfach.

Doch die Fotografie ist eine sehr schwierige Kunst.“

Pontus Hulten

(21. Juni 1924; † 26. Oktober 2006 in Stockholm)

"... 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.“ P.Jones

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.

"Interessanterweise spricht man in der Theologie von 'Erlösung'

und in der Bankenwelt vom ‚Erlös', oder von 'Glaube' und 'Gläubiger',

oder von 'Schuld' und ‚Schulden'.

Neben dem Gott- Vertrauen existiert wohl auch ein Geld- Vertrauen." P.Jones
