Portraits of Time PDF
Written by Astrid Rodríguez   


Portraits of Time is a three-part work in which I narrate my own story, using photographs to represent three generations: my daughter, my mother and myself.

To carry out this work I used two entirely different kinds of cameras: a stenopeic one and an iPhone. I gave the photographs a square format and fused and manipulated them digitally, to represent a parallel in time whereby years ago there was only analogue photography, but now iPhone exists. So I mixed both techniques and cameras, merging the past with the present, portraying time itself…
