Publisher's presentation :

"Breaking news such as the terror attacks in Paris are a veritable jackpot for traditional media in their race for a larger audience. The endless stream of repetitive news, horrifying images and rhetoric create terror's outlook and converts it into a mass consumption product. Much like advertisement, which twists reality in order to sell, the media overexposes negative news so as to increase and retain the viewers' interest. Sometimes following the television coverage of the terrorist attack might be even more traumatic than actually being in Paris.

The series Hello and Welcome to Paris, created in the days after the November 13th attacks, explores the product « Live from Paris » by shifting the focus toward its faces and the key words that remain imprinted in our consciousness. The language used by media is unified and follows the rules of the editorial routine. Reporters with a uniform look and gestures read pre-fabricated lines, while the segments begin with the mandatory « Welcome to Paris. » Is that an oversight on the part of the editor or a trend in the global news industry?"

The texts on the teleprompters (see photos) are printed on translucid inserts and are superimposed on the image of the screen of the teleprompter.

36 pages + 16 translucid inserts - Softcover
