Vancouver based photographer Jennilee Marigomen has been creating an interesting project for the last few years. As she writes on her blog:
“Holding Still is a collection of found travel photographs from a woman’s collection.Nothing is known about her other than that she was a resident of Vancouver, Canada. After feeling a strong affinity to her aesthetic and photographic sensibilities, I decided to scan her photos and share her collection.”
The photographs that Jennilee has scanned offer as a little glimpse into someone else’s life and history and are made all the more intriguing because we don’t know who she is. We see small clues, where she’s travelled, the style of dress of the subjects, the changing skyline of Vancouver and in one the photographer’s shadow. But nothing more.
Sometimes an artistic project can be something as simple as revealing a hidden, forgotten collection.
