A one week narrative project, illustrating Donald Trumps business and political history from 1970 up until his inauguration. Captured in a visual time line and accompanied by a series of images.

The intention of the work is to draw in a younger audience to consider a challenging subject in the world news using this signature approach of collage, combining text with the imagery to reveal the main characters in each scene.

The duration of the project was documented to show the process taken and to give an insight into the work ethic and how long a project such as this may take.
