Banknoten gehen millionenfach durch unsere Hände und doch kann sie kaum einer beschreiben. Mit dem Foto Projekt `MAKRO MONEY` wird vieles sichtbar. Es entsteht eine neue, nie da gewesene Sichtweise auf die Schönheit von Banknoten und der Facettenhaftigkeit von Geld.

In his travels through the world, Pete Jones looks at what 's behind the money. This creates works that refocus the viewer's attention and reinterpret the meaning of money. Through his unprecedented way of looking at banknotes his work can take us on historical journeys to places which no longer exist, show us magical juxtapositions in nature and culture and highlight the multifaceted beauty of money.

In his latest work, Pete Jones combines three images from the series Makro Money with a biblical quotation: FAITH | LOVE | HOPE. The triptych has a size of 360x180cm and was shown for the first time in the exhibition GELD • WAHN • SINN at the Reinbeckhallen (RBH) in Berlin.
