Ecce Homo: Self-Portraits

The Ecce Homo: Self-Portraits series began on October 23rd 2018, a day after President Donald J. Trump proclaimed himself a nationalist, shunning the precepts of "globalism" throughout the world.

"A globalist is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country so much," Trump said. "You know what I am? I’m a nationalist. Okay? A nationalist. Use that word." ... "America is winning again. America is respected again, because we are putting America first," Trump said. "We're taking care of ourselves for once."

Ecce Homo ("behold the man") are the Latin words used by Pontius Pilate when he presents the scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns to a hostile crowd shortly before his Crucifixion. These images are created in response to political changes unfolding on a global scale. Two specific events that triggered the making of these images were the British vote to leave the European Union, known as Brexit, and the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States. The Ecce Homo series of images bear witness to this political change.
