Funny Money

Funny Money is a photo series by Max Siedentopf. He asked different Namibians how much money they wanted for taking a photo of them. Then he asked them to pose the way they wanted, only restriction was that they had to show the money he just gave them. In total he spend 100 euros which equals 1700 namibian dollars for 23 photographs.

So in a way you could say that the photobook, containing  all 23 pictures, is worth a 100 euros. To show this exchange, the design of the book is in the shape of a pile of money bills, binded together with a classic money ribbon.
