Our Happy Dreams Have Now Come True
This photobook documents the lives of my grandparents, paying emphasis to when they met during the war and their marriage. I've taken an overly optimistic and nostalgic approach to the narrative, playing with the connotations of the amateur photographs that were mostly taken in the 1940's & 50's. I've appropriated the text from the back of the photographs and other objects contained in the book instead of placing my own font or presence on the work. The title is taken from small personalised favours given to guests at their wedding.
