My uncle Camille was a gifted organist, an avid photographer and a very private man. When he died, his photographs and slides were distributed to family members, but nobody was able to provide any context for the material. I received one binder with images of Madrid, Rome and Paris. While most of them had a touristic quality attached to them, others were more personal.

As I looked at the images, I noticed that some of the colours were starting to fade away. His past, that nobody could explain, was slowly disappearing. Soon there would be nothing left.

I started to superimpose the images, to double them up in hopes that the memories embedded in there would gather new strength, new life.
