This project is based on a collection of old photo negatives in black-and-white (approx. 100 years old) i found on several flea-markets in France.
The pictures shows people posing through the years, showing their special moments, looking through the lens into the future. The way they pose gives an impression of that time, 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 people in this way, I try to come closer to them.
There might be no familiar relation between the people on these photographs. Although, the longer I work with the images the more relations I tend to see between them. For me they become one family.
