Winner International Photography Award 2014: Marie-Pierre Cravedi

“My photographic work deals with family memory and connection between human beings and their environment. The main interest is to tackle the place of individual within the family group. Memory – in a global sense including oral transmission, memory of places, objects and souvenirs – is another strong component of my work.

My first approach was concentrated around a place: my family house. Having changed little since my childhood, it is a landmark in a world where everything changes quickly. It’s at that moment when the objects appeared in my line of sight. In my family, we’ve kept everything. For generations. We are only a link in the chain, we pass the objects from one generation to another. But we gave also our contribution to the house and future generations will decide what to do. The connection between reality and fiction is completely present in the memory construction. According to Paul Antze’s works, memory wouldn’t only be a reconstruction, but an imaginary construction. In my work, this idea is obvious as I suggest my own interpretation of family. Work developed as a Graduation Project in ECAL
