Book Description: Whilst on assignment shooting an American athlete at his highschool, Helwig noticed slogans and messages spread over the entire school as a means to motivate and inspire students. Being from a European background she was unaccustomed to such visual slogans of motivation. Her immediate emotional and intellectual response reflected her cultural upbringing in post war Germany and prompted her interpretations explored in this project. All photographs printed in Propaganda were taken in 2005 in Georgia, USA.
