Sediments of Happiness, 2018

© Carol Baumgartner

On the wall of our homes, on the screens of our phones or inside our wallets, we all keep precious images linked to happiness, which we like to contemplate and even carry on us. The reflex of photographing our loved ones and the blissful moments of our lives runs deep and the relations between photography, memory and happiness are as deep as they are complex. The Photoforum explores them through the testimonies and reflections of the elderly residents of the nursing homes Redernweg and Ried in Biel. Born in the first half of the 20th century, they have accumulated memories and images over numerous decades, which they share with the public. The images and interviews were produced with the support of the homes' therapeutic recreation teams.

In collaboration with the Photoforum Pasquart.
