Portraits in time


Throughout the years, we collect lots of images from ourselves and from our relatives. My mother has Alzheimer’s disease. She has lost her grip on time, events, people, words, everything. You could say that every memory has slipped away. You could also say that every memory has morphed itself into one, continuous memory: everything is still there, but stacked into one pile, that is right here, right now. I have tried to visualize this by stacking different photographical memories onto one pile. One portrait of my mother and one of myself.



Technical details:

  • Camera/Lens/Settings/Date: several
  • Post processing: Aligned and stacked images using a homebrew Python script using OpenCV. Postprocessing in Lightroom.
