Chris Komater: FAMILY ALBUM


Photographer Chris Komater presents a new series of large-scale, low-resolution images, “Family Album”. For sixty years, Komater’s father meticulously documented events in his family’s life with slides. Following the recent passing of both parents, Komater has chosen a few of these images and produced low-resolution enlargements: his parents kissing in the back of a car; young Chris embracing a teddy bear. Ranging in resolution from easily- to barely-recognizable, the images mirror the process of our loved ones disappearing from our lives.
