Rephotography, c.1950/2000 (series)

Rephotography c.1950/2000 is a “pseudo-collaborative” project involving Kodachrome images originally made by the artist’s father shortly after he immigrated to Canada from China in the 1950s. As this collaboration took place unintentionally, and after the passage of 50 years, it reconsiders questions of originality and authorship originally proposed in conceptual photographic practices of the 1970s and 80s, but through a lens of identity and family history.
