This was one of the most personal projects that I’ve worked on to date. My oldest brother passed away in a car accident when I was about 17 years old, he was 26. For anyone who’s lost a sibling, they can appreciate how devastating something like that can be. As the years passed and days turned into over a decade, I realized that specific memories of his physical being began to fade over time. The memory of who he was as a person I’ll never forget, but physically, it becomes harder and harder to remember certain things with memory alone. All the images in this series are pictures of Maurizio taken throughout his life, I re-photographed them with a specific technique to visually represent this idea of a fading memory. They are meant to document his life from early childhood on. These are a selection from a larger body of work.
