Oliver Möst grew up in the 1970s and, like many others, his parents carefully collected family pictures in photo albums. Of course, their own children often play the main role. Möst selected pictures for this book, showing himself as a preschooler, as an infant in his mother’s arms, as a small child playing in the garden, feeding swans at the lake with his father, or dressed nicely to go on a big trip. Yet everything is blurred, which is, in fact, how he experienced it as a child with defective vision. For this series, Möst transformed the sharp images from the family album into the colourful, unfocused shapes of memory using a multi-stage photographic process. With an essay by Matthias Harder.
