This project is based on a collection of old photo negatives in black-and-white (approx. 100 years old) collected on several flea-markets in France.
On the pictures: people posing through the years, showing their special moments, looking through the lens into the future. The way they pose give an impression of a certain era, and are touching in all their simplicity. The images look pure and honest.
With this negatives as a starting point, i make prints with the Cyanotypes process. By showing the photographs in this way, it feels like something shifts.
The images obtain a new value, fuller and richer.
