I found a 2 1/4 photographic negative on the street. When I saw the three young women, I decide to make my book about them. I invented a life for every one of them. For me, they became young Polish girls living in Montreal. Alicja and Halina are sisters and Yetta, a friend. Alicja and Yetta work together. I chose to bring out all the important events in their lives. I used a cellular binding structure, each cell being a moment in life. The girls are in the middle of the book. Behind them, their past, in front, their future. Each one has a color link that help to follow their story. The photos have no copyright and came from everywhere in the word. For me, it is a way to express that our blood is very mixed and it is almost impossible to know exactly our roots.
