Moshtari Hilal, Second Life, 2019, 200x200 cm, drawing on negative, printed on fabric. 

 

The series Second Life is part of an upcoming publication with Lukas Birk. Birk salvaged the negatives from the 1970s, which had never been picked up, in portrait studios in Peshawar before an end in the trash. Their reworking by Hilal translates the regular studio shots into visual allegories of forgotten family memories.
