Oh fatche


Out of stock



“Oh fatche is a reconstruction of my father’s memory. An excursion into his recollections, a reinterpretation of his youth in Marseille. Through the reappropriation of anonymous and family archives, the book playfully recomposes and reshapes the identity of a man before he became a father.”
Oh fatche was made by Camille Carbonaro in 2013 in Marseille and Allauch.

« Where did pure memorie lie? Each of them bear impressions layering from other times and that render a different reality. There are no memories. It is another life, lived again, with another personality. » Boris Vian • The Red Grass
