The Printer is a photographic documentation of how times have changed in regards to the printing industry. Businesses are slowly diminishing as modern technology continues to develop and the need for online media takes over. As a result, machines that were once used are slowly being replaced and small businesses are struggling to cope with the online competition. This body of work considers a rigorous look into the processes used within a small family business and a major newspaper business. The project comments on the decline and focuses on these working factories, as all aspects of the industry continue to compete with modern advances. Emphasis has been placed on the machinery, serving as an archival record.
