As a memento

The book As a memento, considers an old photographical tradition that nowadays has lost its previous meaning. Text located on the reverse side - an inherent element of old, developed on paper photographs - in the era of digital browsing is impossible to make, apply or reproduce. My work pays attention to various properties of texts written on the reverse side - such as questions of individual handwriting or functions of the messages they consist of. It is also a kind of farewell with the characters of the portraits who in most cases are dead - the text adnotation is a specific tribute to them. The work has two eschatological threads: the one related with people and the other refering to the artistic medium as such. It is a direct reflexion on a memory notion in photography.
