Interview with Taylor Jones about the project “Dear Photograph”, which is being shown as part of the exhibition MEMENTO.
“Dear Photograph”, is a participatory memory project started by Taylor Jones. The idea is simple: take an old photograph depicting friends or family members, go to the place depicted on the photograph, hold the photo in front of the original background and rephotograph the photo and the place. Many internet users followed this call and submitted a photo, always accompanied by a text beginning with “Dear Photograph”.
The photographs chosen for the exhibition recall a personal loss and connect yesterday with today and the analogue with the digital.
The questions were asked by Lorenz Widmaier.
