Publisher Note

The project started with a box of negatives Kapajeva found at her parents’ house a few years ago. There were about 200 processed and unprocessed films, shot by her father. Maria excavated their contents, delving deeper into the lost images of her father’s life, to create her own stories by using these photographs he took before his marriage to her mother and her birth and quotes borrowed from Italo Calvino’s book “If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller”.

Maria says: “I continue to work with questions and matters about found images and archives: how a coincidence can lead to a new narrative that does not relate perhaps to the real events documented in these photographs. It is my way to build up ‘a possible portal between an unfinished past and a reopened future’, as Hal Foster described”.
