US presidential clash in Denmark to involve at least one hanging

US presidential candidates Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump are coming to Denmark later this month for a highly-anticipated clash.

It will be a contest of steely gazes, attended by the likes of Barack Obama, never-blinking from their vantage points … hanging on the wall.

Their portraits, along with 70 plus more of the famous and powerful, will form a retrospective of the work of Swiss-American photographer Marco Grob, which is opening on August 26 at the Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle.

It will include hitherto unseen photos of the Crown Prince Couple.

Juxtaposition is key
Judge for yourself whether Grob’s work proves that photography is an artform.

Sure, many might look at works like ‘BEYOND 9/11: Portraits of Resilience’ and remark “But it’s just pictures of people’s faces,” but are they missing the narrative of the complete piece?
