Photographs from the tin box
20th century is recorded, thanks to photography. Piles of photos are stored in family’s tin boxes, creating a kind of an archive. I believe that act of storing the image has many consequences on the way we understand ourselves and our life.
After the Second World War photography became a medium of the masses and almost everyone participated, if one was not taking pictures, he was at least posing for one.
Thoughts on “A fictive story” experiment!
From the first moment I signed into the flicker account, I realised it is a useful tool. I would define myself as a lazy kind of photographer, shooting only about 50 to 70 rolls of film yearly. Since you can spend an awful lot of time, energy and money I find photography hard to do. But I still love it. What’s the point? So many great vernacular photos have already been made and for that reason I find my photographic work sometimes useless. About two weeks ago, when we seriously started our project Ena rola filma, I thought of a way, how to use other’s people photos to create new series. A completed body of work, with false story and with manipulated meanings of original images.
Pozdrav iz bivše Nemške demokratične republike!
Ker sem še vedno v Berlinu, vas želim počastit z zelo posebnimi razglednicami. Fotograf Simon Manner jih je zbral v serijo Images from the STASI archives.
Nemški vohuni so se res potrudili pri fotkanju, neverjetne barve, občutek nadzora. Uživajte.foto: Stasi
