Self defined Brief - Frost/Nixon

My next double print will be about the Watergate scandal involving Nixon. As some research I've been watching a documentary by David Frost about his interviews with Nixon, and also the film 'Frost/Nixon' with Michael Sheen. They were both so helpful in understanding what actually happened - something I've never really known. I got some pretty good images for it too. The reason why I'm using collage for these prints is because they are supposed to be a form of documentation, of what really happened and what the authorities wanted us to think happened, so it gives it a greater sense of reality. This doesn't come across as well trying to draw realistically.
