Passé Composé Gallery

Passé Composé By Sabrina-M

Passé composé, which literally means composed past, translates a childhood fantasy of having an interested family.

I spend hours browsing old pictures in search of a portrait that could become a new member go the family tree.

Once a portrait is found, the imagination kicks in, adding props and colours, slowly building the character and persona. Using Photoshop to digital hand-colour and manipulate images to make then fun, quirky and surreal.

I often use my own genealogy as a guide to get the dates right, couldn't have a family tree where the mum is older than grandma.


The whole family has about 19 pictures and hopefully I can make a small coffee table book with them, spiced with little stories and fun facts about the person.

The book will be set up like a family tree so people can browse and search for the family connection.


Curremtly there is a pre-order go fund me going one. I've made a little softcover book you can buy and at the same time support a good cause.
