Founded in 2017 by Lee Shulman, The Anonymous Project is one of the most important private collections of amateur color photography of the 20th century.
Composed of approximately eight hundred thousand Kodachrome slides, this set of images forms an incredible collective memory. These anonymous photographs constitute a kaleidoscopic diary of this period, as fascinating as they are striking, because they are imperfect. Often funny, surprising and touching, these images tell the story of strangers who are nevertheless very familiar to us.
The Anonymous Project is an artistic approach that aims to give meaning to these forgotten memories and offers new ways of interpreting and telling stories that question our place in the contemporary world.
Invited in 2021 for the festival, The Anonymous Project is presented again in this 13th edition with new stagings: the reconstruction of a three-room apartment from the 60s, in the small house of the Chatonnière, and with “appearances and encounters” in the city.
