Some images in the series are black and white, some coloured by hand and some yellowed by time. We understand from this and numerous other details that the photographs date from different periods, and from their amateurish snapshot aesthetic that they all form part of a family album featuring the same people in different situations and stages in their lives. Another constant presence is the figure of a slim young woman with long black hair, upon whom time seems to leave no trace.
Moira Ricci delves into the photographs of the past following the tracks of her mother, whose dates of birth and death provide the series with its title and indicate the time span covered by the images. Digital processing of old family photographs enables the artist to appear beside and observe her mother while remaining an extraneous figure, a sort of ubiquitous ghost hovering on the edges of the images and events.
