Vincent Zanni - Sights of Unary
Sights of Unary by Swiss photographer Vincent Zanni investigates the meaning and function of family photos as a tool to preserve memories and hand down identity and experiences down to future generations. In the book over 400 photos are compiled, all part of a very extensive family photographic archive, collected and kept by Vincents’ late grand mother. The archive depicts the lives of a Swiss family and contains 2000+ images, some dating back to the very beginning of commercial photography in the late 1800’s. The unusual interventions and choice of paper for Sights of Unary, including a hand printed cyanotype cover, result in a very unique display of photographs; creating new and distorted compositions with underlaying images that mimic the nature of our own memory, where memories are fluid and the past will never be as clear it was once experienced.
