Portrait of Michel Houellebecq (2010)
I recently bought a collection of vintage film cameras off eBay, among them a Canon AE-1 Program. Yesterday I lent it to a friend of mine who’s travelling for four months through Africa, Asia, Oceania and North-America. As I was making sure the camera was functional I discovered a film roll, still inside the camera, with six shots taken.
Today I had these developed, as far as I can tell it seems to be shots from a wedding in the late 80’s or early 90’s. My guess is that they were taken by the parents of the brunette bridesmaid who serves as the focal point for three of the six photographs. Beyond that, who knows?
