Publisher's Description

The photographs in I've Thought About Family Pictures deal on various levels with one of the most original tasks of photography, the capture and retention of memories. Family pictures are photographs that help to remember, and sometimes even have a memory effect. It can also be our own images that only arise in our head or through stories and our own imagination. Linn Schröder combines these two thoughts in a poetic way and creates visual worlds that, in their surreal, fairytale-like, sometimes staged imagery, tell of astonishment, uncertainty and perhaps even discomfort.

She traveled to Poland with her twin daughters and follows the traces of her mother-in-law's escape during World War II, who was then a young girl. This creates a connection between three generations, the grandmother, the mother and the daughters.

She portrays a befriended family with twins in a recurring rhythm and the boy next door, who she meets again and again. Linn Schröder often works in black and white, which gives the images universal validity. Only apparently identical nature shots, which repeatedly interrupt the flow of narrative, reinforce this timelessness. Linn Schröder's work goes far beyond personal experience. Associative images emerge that tell stories in themselves and tell us something about being human. In this artist's book, these worlds of thought are given an intense, mysterious, dreamlike and grandiose poetic stage.

Linn Schröder, born in 1977, has been a member of the Ostkreuz Agency for Photographers since 2004 and has been Professor of Photography at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences since 2016. I also think family pictures is her first book.
