‘Imaginary diary of a unknown friend’ is an ongoing project in my work. Since I lived in Berlin I started to collect old photographs on flea markets. These where photos of people that once lived in Berlin and surroundings. I found it sad and enigmatic that these photos where left to be found by strangers. I started to combine them with my own photographs, to give the past a new present and rebuilt an environment that affects our own memory and identity. They became borrowed memories that now belong to a new album collection.

“retain our memories, while leaving them their original value as images. Memories of the outside world will never have the same tonality as those of home and, by recalling these memories, we add to our store of dreams; we are never real historians, but always near poets, and our emotion is perhaps nothing but an expression of a poetry that was lost.”
- Gaston Bachelard, the Poetics of Space”
