The Trump (Clinton) and Clinton (Trump) prints are the latest and most effective works in my Anti-paparazzi series. Each print pictures one of the two major-party candidates in the 2016 presidential election. But when they are hit with a flash, the pictured candidate disappears, and his or her electoral rival is revealed. I produced the prints in connection with a show I curated titled Why I Want to Fuck Donald Trump.
