This is You, by Albarrán & Cabrera

Barcelona and Seville

When we look at a photograph related to our experiences, our memories surrender to the printed image. Photographs replace our memories and our identity is verified by that set of photographs.

Some time ago, a friend gave us some negatives that he had found in the trash. They were family portraits taken about forty years ago. All shared a common feature: they were underexposed, so it was difficult to recognize the people pictured.

We decided to use our own photographs along with the anonymous ones, unifying them by using the same printing process, and thus generating the identity and memories of someone who never existed.

They work together as a collaborative duo. He is  photographer and curator and she is photographer and  teacher.
