Memory, Homage, and ... Corruption: Politics and Photography in Public

Election posters in Tripoli, Lebanon. Spending limits are imposed
for the June elections, but only during the last two months.

I was struck by this photograph. It accompanied this story about the buying of an election in The New York Times today. It brought to mind work by french photographer "JR" that I posted about not long ago - here and here. Similar approach, different aims.
