I took portrait photos of contemporary families and I aged them, using the pictures in my family album as inspiration and sometime even as models. Since photography was invented, family portrait has always been one of the most common topic. The photographic media in its brief life widened its public and changed its language many times, escaping more and more the bonds of a lifelike representation. Family units evolved in a similar way: they became more fluid and changeable, escaping the bonds of rigid rules.
The family nowadays is as hard to define as the photos that represent it: you can use photo editing, sepia coloring, and resize the image the very moment the shot is taken.
