Marc Beaussart
Love Coins

09.06.2014

This is a personal series of images that Marc shot after buying these coins from Ebay.
He only later found out these were collectors’ items and were used a couple of centuries ago in casinos and brothels around the USA to pay for different services (as illustrated on the coins).
They originally interested Marc mostly for their texture and detailing which he wanted to highlight in his photography, but he got even more interested when he learned the story behind the objects!
