Something always drew me to making up my own story by re-interpreting old photos
Danielle Hession‘s artwork is an exploration of society’s relationship with treasured objects and personal memories. She reveres old photographs and found ephemera as time capsules and storehouses of information.
Danielle’s work is also inspired by an ever-growing collection of found objects and imagery.There is always an intrigue in the lost story behind each found treasure.

Behind the Scenes – Filmmaker’s Experience
Old photos, pictures, notebooks tend to trigger nostalgia feelings and they always drew Danielle’s attention. Her studio is full of papers, stickers, old pictures and cutting pieces of fascinating shapes. I was intrigued by how she interpret them. She said old photos have its own mystery and story that she doesn’t know. She often goes to St. Lawrence market and dig them out since she was very young. Sometimes she finds those sweet or sad messages on the back of the photo and it inspires her to create her own artwork.
