Daniel Schumann’s Elisabeth und Wilhelm

Daniel Schumann‘s project Elisabeth und Wilhelm unites contemporary portraiture of his grandfather and images taken from family photo albums. The transition from the appropriated imagery to the more mediated photographs doesn’t always feel fluid and intuitive, however, regardless this series is a compelling examination of familial heritage seen through two distinctly different photographic tacks.
