This black-and-white poster is reminiscent of the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Chinese revolution. Under the leadership of Sun Yat-sen, the feudal system, which had ruled China for more than two thousand years, was overthrown. The poster is composed of numerous old photographs and looks like a mosaic. The individual photos are arranged according to brightness to form Sun Yat-sen’s portrait. While reflecting historical events, the design also demonstrates the cruelty of war. The poster is printed on transparent film.
