What’s a “Sweded Photo”? How was born this blog?

First of all, to understand the meaning of “Sweded Photo” you need to have watched Gondry’s flm “Be kind Rewind” in which we discover the term “Sweded”. If you have not seen it, you have to, it’s awesome. Anyway, a “Sweded Photo” i a homemade copy of a photo that we take as reference.

In the beginning we did these photos as a birthday present to our friends, Everyone loved them, so we decided to publish them in/on a blog.

It is the starting point of the idea, without AFP this project wouldn’t exist. When we discovered this page, we thought nothing more hilarious than this could exist in the world. The photos are always authentic.

It`s always freaky. All of them are kitsch, everyone has a detail that makes them unique. Moreover if it is from the States it gains points and when it is made in a photo studio it’s marvelous.

The Baldwin brothers, they have a lot of potential.

Actually, in which proyjects are you working on?

We’ve also done a book, we have edited it ourselves, we sell it to our friends. “The swearword book” is a book with more than 60 swearwords that we have made up ourselves. It has graphics and all. It’s really cool, now we are working on volume II.
