Following his grand-father death who was fighting against Alzheimer disease, Baptiste is working about the duty of memory. With this project, he wants to remember. To remember for those who have been forgotten and for those who forgot. Searching into old boxes, he finds about thirty post cards from an unknown great-uncle. Dated from the First World War, they come from Morocco where his uncle, too old to fight in the trenches, has been sent. Those cards will be the starting point of his work. After a few months
of researching and collecting testimonies and photographs, Baptiste picks up the pieces of a broken family. Through an editorial and photographic work, he reconstructs his family collective memory. In a more than 100 years long journey through time and space, he paints the portrait of those who preceded him. Living again their most glorious and darkest hours, he is tracing the links uniting them. Meanwhile, he is finding his own place in this family.
Until someone forgot.
