Framing with the Scene: Michael Hughes

Photographs where tourist souvenirs are held in front of the camera, only to cover up what is behind these goods - the real landmarks which often represent the city. Framing is a stage in photography, but Michael Hughes has removed/purchased these tourist mementos from gift shops and replaced them at the scene of their origins.

Hughes has worked on reportage works in the former GDR too.
