Cultural Fossils


William Sweetlove understands the importance of cherishing memories and thus culture from the past…

During the seventies and later he has been preserving culture by fossilising pictures of his environment. To prove that memories are always stronger than the elements, he even buried many of his fossilised pictures, to be uncovered again many years later.

William believes the future generations should rediscover their cultural roots… Selfportret, May 1975
