My unwanted memories

Alert: Great idea incoming! A photography series exclusively made by strangers and found on the internet, one thing in common: They all unintentionally have the artist Maurice Kaufmann in it.

“If a staged portrait can distort the “truth”, wouldn’t be a photo by a stranger which was shot accidentally be authentic? The work “My unwanted memories” is a section of images and videos that I found on the Internet over several years. Even though the images were taken by complete strangers in different parts of the world, there is one person that appears in every picture.” – Maurice
