Roots is a photo-art book, telling a family-story through the childhood memories of now a grown-up woman, the artist, Eva Saukane.
The book consists of an unedited roll of film, which Eva Saukane discovered inside her grandfather's camera. Having stood untouched for about 20 years, mold had grown into the film, blurring the images similarly as time does to our recalled memories. When Saukane found the camera with the film inside, the film had two exposures left to be taken. Unknowingly completing her grandfathers work, Eva Saukane took the remaining shots and brought the film to be developed. She discovered the mysterious effect, and the ambiguous story of the family began to unravel.
