This is the last batch of collages realized for this project. I hope you enjoy!
I experimented through the Hitrecord website on vintage portraits that users share on this portal. For the first time I wanted to work on images of people that can recognize themseves in the pictures. This was a big challenge, I was terrified by the idea to manipulate a portrait of someone that is part of the memories “attached” to it. I wanted to create a connection between the images and also to give to these photos a personal interpretation.
The result is a body of work composed of 64 postcard sized photo reproductions of 5 selected retro portraits. I will put them in little groups of 10 or so. The project is part of the Childhood collaboration.
This childhood collaboration is very bright and vibrant. I think the one at the bottom with the girl with her dummy really captures the essence of children at that age. Nicely put together. Sorry is that you?
Thank you Nina! These pictures are took from a file sharing portal called Hitrecord (the link on the post). People posted their childhood images and artists can work on them giving a personal interpretation of the topic. Thanks again for your comment 🙂
