American photographer Glen Erler, currently based in London, gives insight into the most fragile moments of nostalgia through his photo series.
The project, titled Family Tree, is a sensitive exploration of memories, family and the passing of time. After eight years of traveling back and forth from London to his birthplace California, Glen decided to put an end to the series after the sudden death of his father.
The beautifully composed, occasionally staged pictures, hide a thread of deep thoughts. Looking at the pictures, we sense the lingering feeling of nostalgia and emotional reminiscence. Glen explored the helping nature of memories, which build us to be the ones we are today and guide us through our life in difficult moments. He recreated his memories in order to re-live and rediscover them, slowly putting the pieces of the puzzle together again. The intimate photographs can be seen in the monograph, titled Family Tree, published by Kehrer Verlag.
