The Ones We Lost
ongoing research project & artist book - 2023/24

This research project centers around curated archive family photos featuring friends and family members who have been lost along life's journey—whether through death, migration, or the natural progression of life into adulthood. My approach delves into the intriguing concept of the presence of the absent, exploring the impact of our beloved ones and the traces they leave behind inthese archive images—the only tangible proof of their existence. Infused with ablend of nostalgia and melancholy, the core of this research emanates from a sense of inquiry and need to comprehend the intricacies of the past.

This cycle was part of the group exhibition "Vazhdë - Curated with Care" by Tirana Art Lab and Bazament Art Space, Tirana 30 November - 14 December 2023
