Sic transit gloria mundi: Gabriel Orozco, Magnum Photos

On Trump's Inauguration Day (for me: The Real Black Friday), Magnum Photos published this picture on it's Instagram stories timeline – without further credits.

I thought of Rome and the Latin phrase: Sic transit gloria mundi! I take it as the beginning of the end of the American Century.

What comes next? China, Russia, an Arab League? For now, we have art to cope with it.
