Photographic print.

In September, 2017 I invited all former workers of the closed textile mill to take their group photo in front of the former main gates of the mill, a meaningful place of their lives. Altogether 160 former workers between the ages of 40 and 90 came. The photo was displayed as part of my solo exhibition, which opened a week later after the group photo event. Each of the posers got a copy of the photograph. For me it was an attempt to offer them a disappeared feeling of unity and togetherness, which for many of them has already turned into rather nostalgia than true memories of their times at the mill.
