What if you were a Changeling?

What if your memories were different from the stories you were told by your family?

My sense of being a Changeling appeared to be a universal feeling, so I decided to create a fictive life… since memories were playing tricks on us all, I could make my own. In this project ‘Changeling’ I captured memories by playing with the concept of time, space and scale within an imaginary life.

I found that family albums and snapshots are not merely objects. They elicit social rituals of going through the photos over and over again with family members.

This ritual shapes a memory collective of people sharing the same narrative and visual memory.

The poetic work of ‘Changeling’ will be a similar visual memory and legend. The photographic concepts used in this series have been realized through analogue photography, polaroids and the use of different handcrafted blurring- and fading techniques.

Changeling is an ongoing project, it will be both a photobook and an exhibition.
