The Rotten Times
The Rotten Times is a collaborative project between myself, Emilio Sánchez and Sara Yonas. Working with the theme of decay over time, we created a newspaper which subverts the traditional news publication. Several aspects make this newspaper unique; the curation of breathtaking imagery, rich in detail and hidden narratives, the exploration of subjects normally overlooked in the media, and the redaction of text to create a sense of timelessness, allowing the photos full agency to tell their story of time. In each section, images were curated to represent narratives of decay; Health (human decay, abandoned hospitals), Dining (rotting food, broken pottery) Style, Weather, Arts and so on. Great care was taken in preserving the minutia and detail of layout and printing artifacts which make a traditional newspaper so iconic.
