Sabina Korth in Italy has just published a book of her photo-collages about family album "reconstructions". |
Titled: L' Album di Famiglia "reinventato" con il collage fotografico
(loose translation via Google Trans): Family Album "Reinvented" Through Photographic Collage.
More information is at:
Below is an English Summary of the text on that page (again thanks to Google Translate):
"The photos evoke particular moments of our existence, and pause at particular situations that make us perceive the passage of time, and changes of our world, but also provide the elements of continuity to our life story.
The creative process of photo-collage can be an amazing experience, revealing, sometimes
reconciling because you can compare, examine, re/evaluate yourself in relation to your "self", your image, your family and -- more generally, your own world.
It is also true that photography, because of being able to freeze images, can contain within itself elements that are highly destabilizing and "disturbing" -- that sometimes might hinder our perception and another's identity, making that less confrontational relationship through its photographic.
Photo-collage provides the opportunity to enjoy the irony of the past or the present, making it possible to revisiting its history, reinvent it and put it in a completely new context.
This permits people to re/write their history through a "cut and paste" process involving copies of original family photos. The final product will be a new "family album" custom."
