tatiana grigorenko

tatiana grigorenko's 'the disappeared' project. "an anti-portrait of a missing protagonist. inspired by soviet-era images that were manipulated to make individuals 'disappear' from history. the project is an exploration of memory, presence, invisibility and historical revision. blowing up my family's snapshots to the point that their grain structure started to fall apart, i meticulously removed myself from each image using collage and/or paint." see more here.
