RICHARD ROTH | Collecting Myself

Two Hundred and Fifty Images From from Newspapers presents images of extreme displays of grief with accompanying captions, clipped from the newspapers. On the day of publication the newspaper is a portfolio of prints that exists in the millions. One week later these little yellow clippings, the salvaged scraps of a deluge of ink and paper, are rare indeed. Rescued from oblivion, these are images that demanded to be brought together and displayed beyond their momentary life span.

  Richard Roth, Images from Newspapers, 250 framed newspaper clippings depicting
  extreme displays of grief, installation view, 1993-present, dimensions variable.
