I recently acquired a wedding album, dating from 1987. Looking through the pages, I imagined all the stories hidden within the pictures. I imagine that a wedding has to be one of the most important days of your life. At least it must seem that way while it's happening. I see the camera man as the silent observer, capturing all these special moments. There is no way to know what was really being thought in each of the pictures, one can only imagine.
I selected the pictures that I felt were more expressive. I photocopied them, then thought of the captions later. I combined the images into two different 8-page books. I call this series 'The Wedding'.
