Jay Younger’s recent work employs a photographic process using smoke and mirrors, a concept based on the magician’s practice of distracting an audience with reflections and a burst of smoke. Demagogues and Megalomaniacs introduces appropriated news images of high-profile and ‘notorious’ politicians, both here and abroad, to reveal their deceptive agendas.
