Project van Annemie Maes door Andries Fluit
The People Database by Annemie Maes is a large collection of polaroid
negatives of passport photos. She collected these photos on
her many trips around the world. This database is initially an interactive
artistic project. Anybody can participate by adding a text to the photo
of their choice, the text can be anything thats on their mind at
that very moment. The photo of an unknown person gives shape to thoughts
and feelings.... The compilation of these images and words presents a
unique portrait of contemporary society.
Contributions can be made via the website
Authors Kristin Prevallet (NY) and Herman Portocarero
(Brussels/NY/Havana) and many anonymous visitors have already contributed.
