Traces

Poland

 

This project is based on vintage photographs purchased from an image bank. Family scenes, vacation souvenirs, everyday life, suspended anywhere between truth and fiction. It is hard to figure whether they are spontaneous or entirely staged. We know nothing of the actual ties between the individuals in the photographs; we can only figure the truthfulness of their gestures and gazes. Who are, or were, these people in the photographs? Are they actors playing happy families, or real people whose photographs were put up for sale by the image bank?
