Why do you make photographs? I want to try documenting memories. Magical chemistry of analogue photography brings a tangible feeling to the past. In my stay at home, I was scanning some old family photographs. Photos hiding in the old pages of photo albums are fading. What about the negatives?
Here in this photo set I have recent photographs from Brussels. In December 2011 there was a major strike in the public sector. I was out for a short walk to the flea market and then to the center with my old Lubitel. This fresh memory was documented with an expired Kodak dia film and cross processed. I know it is under-exposed, pointing out to a very bad quality photography skills but I like them because you loose your reference in time.
This photo set is documenting street happenings. Nothing extraordinary except for the police riding horses. Green tones dark feeling bring the economical problems in Europe. A chaotic feeling also makes you sick when you look at the multiple exposure and the crappy scan of the negatives.
