Yesterday’s Paper

Pictures are an efficient way to document today for the future; pieces of evidence that carry information and pass them to the next generation.

"Yesterday's Paper" is a project about newspapers in the final days before a complete migration from print to web. Modern life calls for higher speed in disseminating news, and printed newspapers struggle to keep pace with it. There are many debates around this issue. Many believe this will be the end of the paper era, while some think nothing can replace the tangible news sheets. I don't intend to take any sides; rather record what I see today to save them from sinking into oblivion.

It is a simple story about the newspaper and everything associated with it; the newspaper kiosk, the weights, readers, and the papers left on the streets; a world that might vanish sooner or later. Something familiar for us today might hold nostalgia in the future.
