Imagine finding an old photo box up in the dusty attic, each photo telling of a story frozen in time. Suddenly, images start moving, coming to life, and you are sent into daydreams, flashbacks and recollections. With twenty miniatures, each restricted to only a few minutes, I have tried to portray a story, a drama, condensed with visual details that may sometimes resemble a short movie. Some of these portraits are based on real experiences of mine, while others are completely imaginary.
"The Old Photo Box" was commissioned in memory of Adele and John Gray.
