experiment done at grafias do outro (other's graphys) workshop coordinated by the artist Nydia Negromonte and organized by Feira Plana. the exercise consisted of bringing personal archive's images to the classroom and switching with the other participants. on doing this, we were asked to create our own narratives and therefore, tell a visual story by alterating the images somehow.
by luck, I received a photographic album found on the streets and recreated the story behind the family extensively portraited in this album. I decided to cut off parts of the photographs, insert another one underneath it and highlighted it.
on the image on the left, we can see a family and its maids all gathered around a big table, painted and highlighted in green, we can see a big farm house. and on the image on the right, we can only see the table, but not the people.
