The tall concrete blocks of flats all stand dark and quiet in the cold evening air. Streetlights are illuminating the empty spaces between the kindergarten and the primary school. The shadows are deep and the light is still as harsh as I remember. But this time I stand taller. With a specially constructed box I set up and expose sheets of film directly in the yellow light of my old housingcomplex. The filmbox being 120cm tall records the shadow the way it fell on me the year I celebrated my 7th birthday. Walking around my old playground I remember my first time going home from kindergarten alone, in anticipation of starting in primary school the following autumn. And looking down on the shadows marking the boundaries of my childhood roaming area I can this time pin them down on my sheets of film.
A series of photograms on film made outdoors with a lightproof box.
