The state of the ailing economy is ample inspiration for London-based still-life photographer Matthew Donaldson. Donaldson’s presidential series of money photos features Ulysses S. Grant with a thermometer in his mouth, Alexander Hamilton in a neck brace, Andrew Jackson with a cold pack on his head and George Washington sporting a respirator.
Even if the old adage that, “when America sneezes the world catches cold,” is less true than it used to be, Matthew Donaldson’s photographic observation that those imperiled U.S. presidents aren’t improving an ailing economy is on the money.
