Photographic Homecoming & Origins of Fathers
Archival material, silver gelatin prints
10 x 15 cm, various sizes
In these works, three generations of men meet through a house in various states of decay.
In Photographic Homecoming, eight photographs left behind by my paternal grandparents are examined. The images show my grandfather returning to his childhood home after 60 years.
The work deals with subjects like time, decay, family and masculinity.
In Origins of Fathers, a work containing photographic fragments in black and white, me and my father visit the place where the original photographs were taken 25 years earlier.
