Newbie I Am My Family

Has anyone seen the Book by Raphael Goldchain (really his name). He wanted pictures for his genealogical Research for his family. Not having them he created them all using his own face for a basis, plus changing clothing styles and hair do's, plus retouching to give himself quite a varied bunch of ancestors. It boggles the mind how much time he must have spent doing this project. But take a look at some of them by going to this web site to vview a few of the resulting images.

Re: I Am My Family

Genealogically, it's all rubbish "Goldchain openly admits that he had to imagine much of his family history."
As an exercise in photography, it's quite interesting and more akin to movie makeup tricks. For the time and money invested in this project, it would be more relevant if it was based on actual family facts, instead of the family fantasy he wished he had.

It may well be Genealogical rubbish, but it still is, IMHO, great craftsmanship using the power of the camera, makeup, costumes, and retouching. But that's how I see it personally.

What do others think about this or doesn't anyone want to chime in?
