Lilla Turi
Things I Remember

Commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
The book started off as a translation of my grandfather's family photographs - seeing through someones eyes with whom I never met is a strange experience. These drawings slowly developed to an almost silent picturebook that collects special and everyday moments of our lives from the beginning to the very end. It works as a collective memory album to start conversations and share our own stories.

How was the illustration used:
Picturebook for all ages

How did you make this work:
acrylic paint, colourpencil, waxcrayon, gouache marker
