Class Picture

Dried flowers on plywood
Serie of 4 pieces, approx. 30cm x 70cm / piece

Class photography might be the most familiar type of group portraiture. It condenses the essence of the act of taking a photograph: recording time in life, saving a past moment for the future. The people in the picture form a community that are close to each other and joined, regardless of the actual relationship of the individuals.

The children depicted in these portraits are unknown to me. Still I believe all of us can maybe see someone we remember from our past, our communities we used to be part of. The memory of the person is there, regardless of our relationship to them.
