With the familial gatherings I’ll have this weekend (this is Christmas after all!), I wanted to share the series “Updating a family album” by Malekeh Nayiny.
This artist born in Iran, and now living in Paris, transforms the old black and white photographs of her family into colorful ones, adding with her computer (which becoming then a sort of ‘time machine’ for her) all sort of collages and intentionally out of context backgrounds, bringing her ancestors back to life, or at least makes them travelling to a wonderful world.
This is beautifully made, full of love, and an awesome way to develop an awareness of her familial history.
Happy Monday All 🙂
