Once there was a boy. Photographer Zed Nelson


Guardian Weekend 23.10.2010    Pgs 25-30.

Zed Nelson has photographed the same family, once a year on the same day, for 20 years. I take hundreds of photo’s of my extended family all year round, some just languish on my computer screen unseen by anyone, some get printed, some framed. What is really interesting about this project is not only the obvious time scale but his ” analytical approach“. The same plain background is used for each session and he chooses only 1 frame to represent that years image. My many photographs are a  mishmash of family events, his create a family history unfolding . Perhaps less really is more.
