Family Album

Cut outs from the family album of my family in law.

Looking through old family albums at a family reunion last summer, I saw many remarkable photos. I wanted them to tell a new story by making collages of them and some with my own photos. It was a proces of rephotographing the old photos, printing, collaging en rephotographing again. Placing two images close together in one frame is a form of juxtaposition. It may look like there is an absence of relations between details, but the images are not about the details. My aim is to present te viewer a new image in which s/he can see a new story. But that is all up to your imagination, not mine.
