Eva Stenram - Retouching History

‘Retouching History’ uses Eva Stenram's family album as her source material. After selecting the photographs to rework, new photographs were staged so that they would be able to fuse with older photographs from the family album. In some instances, Stenram was digitally inserted into the older image and in other cases elements and people were pulled from the family album into the new shots. Stenram’s family history is in this way constructed, condensed and rearranged. ‘Retouching History’ is an exploration of a basic fantasy: what would it be like to be the same age as our parents? Would we like each other or fall out?

Derek Henderson, Terrible boredom of paradise

Henderson states; These photographs were taken over a 4 month period in 2004-2005. I was trying to recapture what I saw as a child in the backseat of my parents car when we went on holidays. Even though the car was moving fast the car window seemed to frame, isolate and freeze these moments which have stayed with me more as emotions rather than as images.

His latest body of work resulted from a 13,000 km road trip around New Zealand over four and half months. “I intentionally went to places that you don’t read about or see so much about. Those rural areas where there is a small pocket of urban.I would drive into those towns around 5 o’clock, and there would be a rush hour, for half an hour, and then there wasn’t a single person on the street – in a car, walking down the street, communicating with anyone – they were all inside, living their lives vicariously – through satellite TV, the internet, playstation.It’s a beautiful landscape, but everyone seems to be quite bored. It was a bit of a cathartic journey for me.”
