The Right to be Forgotten
2021 - Ongoing

I am reproducing a Google-found portrait of the first man to successfully claim his ‘Right to be Forgotten’ in the European Court of Justice. His successful lawsuit made his quest to be forgotten very memorable. I look for reproduction techniques that simultaneously show and alter his portrait. The internet does not forget and so we are faced with ever-growing personal archives online. For this body of work I use photographic reproduction as a means to reflect on endless circulation; the resilience of the image.
