Barbara Ringer – Family Album

The childhood memories captured in the happy photos of family albums are not usually the moments that impact who we become as adults. Using old dolls, I set up and photograph scenarios that evoke the flip side of the family album:  the darker moments of childhood. This submission is of one family album containing several two page spreads. Using my own work plus a few found photographs, I’ve reimagined a family album with its own surreal history.
