About the pictures:

Money carries a huge weight of meaning. It's a form of energy, a means of exchange, an object of desire. We trade our time for it, we philosophize about it, we think it will or will not buy happiness.

Currency is the repository for all that money is and represents to us. I use currency as the primary design element in my pictures to tap into this powerful vein of meaning.
