Faces of Evil

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 5.44.43 PM

FACES OF EVIL – shows the faces of the cruellest and most infamous dictators of our time, from Mao to Hitler to Mugabe. Hans Weishäupl took photographs of over 350 people in each dictator’s country and pieced particular parts of them together to create a new and alarmingly lively look for each of them. All seem familiar and yet somehow impenetrable due to the many faces that hide behind each portrait – just as in reality.

I’ve taken the liberty to choose THREE.

Adolf Hitler
Who: An idealist, dreamer, racist, dictator, over achiever and a public speaker, all for nothing.
What he believed: “Great movements are popular movements. They are volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into the activity by ruthless Goodness of distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people”
What he taught: “Hate is more lasting than dislike”

Saddam Hussain
Who: The most methodical Arab leader of the 20th Century.
What he believed: “Im a firm, but just leader”
What he taught: “Politics is when you say you are going to do one thing while intending to do another. Then you do neither what you said, nor what you intended”

Joseph Stalin
One of the most murderous dictators in the history.
What he believed: “Death solves all problems, no man, no problems”
What he taught: “One death is a tragedy, one million is a statistic”

In my opinion, it’s all the same s*** but a different smell, however; if you had to rank the wrong doings of these so called ‘educated men’ who would you throw under the bus first?
