The Living Archaeology of Private Life
Old residential areas being demolished to make place for larger and larger buildings are currently a fairly common scenario in Chinese cities such as Shanghai. With the landscape changing in a vertiginous speed, it is not uncommon finding traces of private life left behind. The sight of these objects fills the ruins with the memory of affections and daily life that, now displaced, happens somewhere else.
Besides the photographic series, this project lead to 拆 [chai], an self-published photobook, with a edition of 200 copies, signed and numbered. It can be ordered here: http://www.leticialampert.com.br/en/lojinha/
