Memories are, in a way, a package passed on from one generation to the following. They become pieces compiling the collective memory. Black and White photos are said to be burdened with nostalgia, particularly when the photos come from a family archive; where locations, people and time, and most important, the moment captured. They dwell in our collective memory.
Different elements may stand out forcefully to some more than others, often a matter of age, surely when the viewer perceives the fact that the people in the picture are no longer amongst us. This work is actually an initiative to create archive photos a new history through dismantling its components, re-archiving them in, as well as outsourcing them to, the general collective space.
