“Things falling apart is a kind of testing

 and also a kind of healing.” 

~Pema Chodron

How do our intimate stories become stories of others? Memories of others? How do they become art and part of other people’s intimate memories? 

A discarded box found on the streets of Paris has led Noemi Veberič Levovnik to explore the objects and images found within its contents. The images were discarded snapshots documenting, she believed, the life of its past owner. Noemi has reconstructed the snapshots found in the box, creating a new story, a new life from those records. 

I feel time passing. Every moment dies after it has passed.

His name was Yvann.

He most have been born around 1970. The last photos date from around 2004.

He had a pilote’s licence and loved several women.

He was a teenager in the 80s.

That is all I know of him.
