Dear Photograph is a contribution based project grounded on a simple idea: a cherish photo from the past is held in the photographer’s hand in the exact spot where it was originally taken. He then takes a snapshot so it blends in perfectly with the décor, before posting the picture on a blog. Although the image within an image is not a new concept, Jones also incorporates a written element, allowing the owner of the photograph to add a personal history under their reborn hand-held montage. Despite the diversity of photographic contributions, his body of work contains an aesthetic that remains consistent and evokes a certain sense of nostalgia.
Festival Images will extend this exposition with a project focusing on participation within Switzerland. For more information go to www.images.ch.
