VordenWäldernMontenegros / photo series memory/narration


In my diploma project I explored seven family stories of my relatives by re-staging them in artificial landscapes of museums with me as both recipient and re-narrator. The photographic work echoes firstly how listeners sculpt and visualize stories based on their own experiences, secondly how every individual is composed of the own family memories and finally how history can be portrayed as a generating strength for the individual presence and future. My work wants to communicate the relevance of the individual stories we all share and to reveal that every family story offers at the same time a precious space for personal re-interpretation.
