Sarah Carlier – Family Portrait ( Romania 2010, 2:38 mins.)

In my videos I use a constant frame that just moves through my characters. Using this working method I want to explore the boundaries between video and photography but also reveal the moment in time and the real action. The duration of the video is similar to the celebration of the moment. ‘family portrait’ deals with the similar working method. The video was made at the wedding of Romanian friends in 2010 and shows family members preparing themselfs to take the familie picture. You hear them talk, you see them move, you feel impatience…until finally the picture can be taken.
