Family Familiar is a series of photographs taken by Viking’s family members, none of whom have worked professionally with photography. By removing them from the original photo albums and sequencing them into a book, a new personal narrative is created.
“In a collaboration like this, I worked with a non-artistic and private archive full of photographic “mistakes” and “wrongly” framed images. I believe these images tell a deeper and more intimidate story than I ever would have been able to portray if I were the photographer.”
André Viking (b.1989) is a Danish visual artist currently living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark. His work has been exhibited internationally, in Copenhagen Photo Festival, Krakow Photomonth, and The Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado.
