According to the author, “the photographs are composed by incorporating old photos of relatives into present-day settings, such as landscapes, museums, ruins, etc. The aim is to give these forgotten portraits a new image and a vehicle for remembering them”.
Magic realism was a literary trend that prevailed in the 1960s and 70s as the outcome of the discrepancies between two perspectives that co-existed alongside each other at that time. The right term for this photography is fantasy realism.
