This set of photographs depicts memories or tales of individuals from
the communist era. Some of the images are connected to an individual’s
memory, while others draw on collective memories of the time period. One
may or may not view these as politically correct.
It is interesting
to see how everyone questions “the change” that the Velvet Revolution
brought; has the post-communist era ended, or will it ever really end?
During the process of interviewing people, it was very promising to see
how, knowing or unknowingly, personal tales were eventually tied to
freedom, from the shortage of toilet paper to the ban on traveling. This
series does not try to differentiate what is good and what is bad, but
rather states, "This is what we will remember."
Here is my piece from the exhibit.It was 21st anniversary of Velvet revolution in CZ.
All my photographs were shot on Medium Format Film
