A SHORT DOCUMENTARY ON THE ARRIVAL OF THE FOSTER FAMILY ARCHIVE

 

THE RETURN TO NEVERLAND

Tracing images composition of censorship, identification and touch in the representation of what I have named the foster family archive, the short documentary RETURN TO NEVERLAND explores what it means to alter the compositional elements of photographs when the aesthetic of the photographs represent a social reality thus attempting to qualify the arrival of a new personal archive image, with or without faces. By looking at how the haptic and tactile qualities of the photograph are accentuated and focusing on the theme of impermanence or absence in the formal framing and composition of the photograph, it also reflects an impossibility to identify with a foster sibling who has left the family forever.
