„I met my father last time when I was 3 years old. I am trying to find him with the means of photography, inserting screen icons such as Jean-Paul Belmondo, Alain Delon and Marcello Mastroianni into photographs beside my mother to create an idealised new family.“

"Photographer Natalya Reznik’s parents divorced under bitter circumstances when she was three years old. As a consequence she never got to know her father. After her mother discovered he had another wife and child, she destroyed most of the family’s photos of them together. With no clear image of how he looked, Reznik tried to recreate a picture of her father using the few photos she found in old albums. Using digital manipulation techniques, she also inserted screen icons such as Jean-Paul Belmondo, Alain Delon, Marcello Mastroianni and Jean Marain into photographs beside her mother to create an idealised new family. “This project is very personal,” she says. “It’s somewhere between documentary and fiction, where the dreams of my mother are real but the memory I created for myself is fictional.” (Text: Anastasia Fedorova)
