I Am My Family: Photographic Memories and Fictions, by Rafael Goldchain is a very unique and interesting look at one man’s family through ancestral photographs.
“Rafael Goldchain’s I Am My Family is a family album of traditional portrait photographs with an unconventional twist: the only subject is Goldchain himself. In an elaborate process involving genealogical research, the use of makeup, hair styling, costume, and props, Goldchain transforms himself into his ancestors and captures their personifications with the camera.”
