8 Days After Being Born
About this project
As a teenager, I had the shocking realization that many of my dreams and fantasies were not the products of my own imagination but of films I had seen when I was very young. It unleashed a profound skepticism in me about images and their meaning, but it also allowed me to see how powerful they can be. This haunted me when I relocated to New York and sought solace and grounding in my family’s photo albums. Looking often and repeatedly at pictures of my childhood, they suddenly stopped making sense to me.
