Faded Memory: An Artist Painted Over His Friends That He Don’t Remember

According to Portuguese artist Alberto Achega Leitão: “I found some lost photographs taken by my father. After I saw these images, I started remembering old times and old friends. However, I did not remember everyone. So I decided to draw over those I do not remember very well. The less detailed a person is, the less I remember that person.”

“My father was the one who introduced me to photography, so it looked like a perfect idea. After he gave me the permission to edit these old photos, this mixture of photography and illustration came into being.”
