Laura Lancaster UK, b. 1979

Overview

Laura Lancaster's images mostly originate from strangers’ memories and time periods captured in photos she has accumulated from old family photo albums found in antique markets, magazines, and on the Internet. The strangers in these pictures are put in a group photograph, divorced from the context of their specific situation and time, while figures in different photographs have been recomposed and recreated in a completely new space and time. This series primarily concentrates on capturing moments of our existential lives and is not meant to represent specific people or events. Through the strangers in her paintings, viewers can relive their own happy or heartbroken moments and experience a feeling of being rearranged in dim memories in search of lost time.
