Photographic documentation of an action, where the body is employed as a geopolitical metaphor ultimately subdued to its immediate context.

G-7 is a group of industrialized countries whose political, economic, and military clout is globally relevant. The group is comprised of Germany, Canada, United States, France, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom. The G-7 was established in March 1973, when, at the request of George Shultz, the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury at the time, met with the finance ministers of the United States, Japan, West Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. Italy was included in the group in 1975, at the summit in the Château de Rambouillet in France. Canada joined the group two years later, in 1977, at the summit in the Dorado Beach Hotel in Puerto Rico.
