Ghosts of Posters Past

This collection is from a poster show I did in Providence, RI. I interviewed 9 locals to find out what their life philosophy is. The show was inspired by the Works Progress Administration “Posters for the People” movement. I decided that it would be fitting to propagandize from the bottom up… reversing the flow of information.

From each interview, I extracted a single message and created a slogan for that individual.

I really enjoyed the interviews and locally the posters were a hit. It is amazing what wisdom people have to share, if only you ask.
