La maison qui m'habite encore New

La maison qui m'habite encore

Inspired by her childhood house in Morocco, Aassmaa Akhannouch has conceived this series around the exploration of memories. The photographer brings back to life the spirit of the place by replaying scenes in this home, like suspended moments, where remains the old broken-down television set, the telephone that would no longer ring, the dress long since forgotten, in the wardrobe…

Follows the long period of working on the different materials and printing techniques in her laboratory to transfer the negatives into cyanotypes later toned and enhanced with watercolours to underline specific details in the image. The photographer lets then come to the surface the passing of time as well as the vision of a timeless Morocco imbued with universal childhood memories.
