Our project “The Family Album” is a story in the past from which we return back to our times and materialized it just now. It is a dream within a dream, in which we dream about us sleeping. It is our attempt to play with time.

It is impossible to contend that we chose this path first. However, looking at the results, it is clear that nothing like “The Family Album” has ever existed. First we created a creative operational space and then expanded it for our comfort. There we freely operate with documentary “rural” photographs and their reconstructions: the genuine family documents found by Mykola Babak while exploring rural Ukraine. While we do it, we are constantly looking beyond the edge of the impossible.
