Generations – Julian Germain

May 24, 2016 - May 25, 2016 - Across Ipswitch

The continuing series of ‘Generations’ portraits grew out of the earlier ‘Face of the Century’ project, engaging with similar themes concerning the life cycle, the ageing process, human biology, characteristics and questions of nature and nurture. It specifically and sequentially records direct biological lines of descent.

“…Julian Germain not only tries to capture the people but also the transient nature of all things. It is photography as photography was meant to be, exactly how the medium is used best: for producing, in process form – somewhat melancholic – time-related documents, flashbacks, memories made visible. Photos that elevate the personal lives of those photographed and bring to mind questions that confront all of us at some time in our lives: where do I come from, and where am I going?” Merel Bem

Julian has been commissioned by PhotoEast to continue his work on the ‘Generations’ project. We are looking for four and five generations of the same family from Ipswich and the surrounding towns and villages who would be interested to take part in the project.
