Photo Album #159

        PROJECTS CONSTRUCTED ABSTRACT BLACK & WHITE COLOUR STATEMENT

This work takes the form of an intervention in an original photo album, album #159 from the Album project by the artist Max Dean.

The pages from the album have been separately photographed and then layered into two new photographs.  These new photos have

then been inserted back into the middle of the album. The original album photos turn into visible ghosts, hovering in between the

pages and coming to the surface of the print.

Through the layering of selective fragments into each other, the images represent a collapsing of time and place. No longer is there a

beginning or an end. The album images are now presented as one image, as they might be imagined in the memory of the original

album owner.
