Having done some initial research and thought carefully about the relationship between memory and photography I decided to base my project around the old found imagery that I have collected over the last year. For me the appeal of these old images wasn’t so much the portraits themselves but the sense of ‘history’ behind the image- a narrative that’s not shown in the actual image itself but implied with the images presentation. I wanted to recreate this implied narrative by creating images that followed the pose of a found image and then presenting them in such a way as to make them look authentic and (hopefully) manufacture this hidden narrative.
