Description

Named after a classic magic trick with cards, and based on the similarities that all traditional photo albums present in their content, ‘Everybody’s Card’ is a form study that comments on the generic within album photography.

Avoiding the use of personal imagery, intimate photographs become generic due to small interventions; collage, modified poker cards and excerpts from magicians’ handbooks are combined to create a narrative that compares a deck of cards with any collection of photographs found in a traditional photo album. Starting from a series of nearly identical elements, it’s only the way we play them that provides a different result for each game.

Content editing and design, in collaboration with Martine Derks.

Stitch-bound with transparent slipcase.
