Stolen Memories: Artist Replaces Individuals In Vintage Photos With Own Image
By Dorothy Tan, 08 Nov 2013
Chicago-based artist Jennifer Greenburg has created an intruging photo-manipulation series titled “Revisiting History” where she “travels back in time” by inserting herself into vintage photographs.
Instead of merely adding herself into the frame, she replaces an individual in each picture with an image of herself, using “source material from someone else’s life” and “taking over their memories to call [her] own”.
Greenburg has blended herself so seamlessly into these vintage photographs that it appears as though she was really there when they were taken—according to the artist, the project allows her to create “counterfeit memories” and let her take on many different roles, such as being a musician, mother or even a corpse.
