Artist Andres Galeano breathes new life to decades-old photographs by incorporating them into his photographic series, "Unknown Photographers."
Time and again we’ve witnessed how found photographs are more than just fascinating pieces to look at. Artists have continuously come up with ways to incorporate such photographs into their work, one of them being artist Andres Galeano through his series “Unknown Photographers.”
“Unknown Photographers” is the result of a two-year quest for old photo albums sourced from flea markets. A press release states that these albums were originally found neglected in closets and basements of houses in Berlin, while another elaborates that Galeano formed his works “without cutting or manipulating them in any way… [and] assembles them according to certain geometric principles.” For example: “Numerous rainbows, photographed at different times by people who are unknown to each other, are combined to form a perfect oval in Galeano’s montage.”
