THE FEAR THEORIES is an 11 years approach into the fear of oblivion of a growing boy, the fear of reality and a contemplation of my photographic memory.
Refering to my photographic archived I unreaveled pictures that, through a swift of a personal focus on my son, became traces and proofs to understand his inner world based on fears.
The Fear Theories therefor is playing with history, memory and imagination.
While exploring my private archive I came across images that I remembered as if it was yesterday, others seemed completely unfamiliar to me.
I started working with the photograph as an object to visualise the flexibility of a human memory and how it transforms with the time as well as how we behave with the constant growing of digital image data.
Material: several materials
