MRS. MERRYMAN’S COLLECTION by Anne Sophie Merryman

Anne-Marie Merrymanによって1937年から1980年の間に集められたポストカード・コレクションを、Marieの没後受け継いだ孫のアンネ・ソフィー・メリーマン(Anne-Sophie Merryman)。ポストカードを眺めては異国の地への妄想を膨らませていた祖母 Marie、残されたコレクションを通して祖母の思いや空想にふれた孫 Sophie。出会う事が無かった2人の、ポストカードを介したダイアログをノスタルジックに描いた作品集。National Media MuseumとMACKによって共同運営され、過去に写真集出版経験の無い作家の出版支援を目的とする「First Book Award」第1回目のグランプリ受賞(2012年)に伴い発行。

Anne-Marie Merryman collected postcards between 1937 and 1980, a collection inherited by her granddaughter, Anne Sophie Merryman. The book, Mrs. Merryman’s Collection, presents the postcards which together form the story of two intertwined lives - one life lived travelling the world through the postcard images, the other a child and then adult whose life and relationship to her own history and her future were influenced by the collection. While Anne-Marie and Anne Sophie never met, both their lives were inspired by the postcard collection - a relationship that was born, and continues to flourish, in the realms of the imagination. Mrs. Merryman’s Collection is the winner of the First Book Award 2012, an award by the National Media Museum and MACK to support the publication of a book by a previously unpublished photographer.
