Entitled Les Sept Mercenaires or The Magnificent Seven, these folded money portraits by Philippe Petremant combine a number of national currencies to create dynamic political leader portraits.

The photographer folds bank notes and combines a series of opposing facial features into a series of life-like portraits that feature various adjoining fragments. Aiming to create ‘a new twist on an old reality’, the artist’s work disguises the leaders featured on his original bank notes and instead drifts away from their known appearance with added accessories and attributes that blur masculine and feminine lines.

These folded money portraits by Philippe Petremant offer multi-dimensional and visually intriguing views thanks to their paper materiality that overlaps, folds and bends in order to convey lifelike portrait imagery.
