The Ancestor Blueprint photography project examines the relationship between ancestry, family history and identity. The project consists of a portrait series that juxtaposes contemporary images of modern-day Jewish subjects with Old World pictures of their grandparents, illuminating striking familial resemblances across generations and vivid contrasts shaped by historical, social and cultural discontinuities.
The project is an attempt to uncover a poignant connection with our personal and collective past, while exploring the relationship between inherited traits and self-identity through the idioms of digital and vintage photography.
Ancestor Blueprint follows modern Jewish immigrants across the globe to reveal how distant family histories are inscribed into the folds of the contemporary Jewish self. The elegiac family photographs bear a special significance as they testify to the upheavals of history, uprootedness, and the pains of immigration while presenting before us the only evidence of a bygone family past. 2012 Photography
