The Archive Box
Using her photo material done on assignment between 1990 and 2008 in a nearly 20 year collaboration with Martin Margiela, Marina Faust presents selections of images in The Archive Box that reflect a self appropriation of photos from her unique resources. She is re-photographing with the distance of time her own photo prints, slides, negatives, contact sheets, polaroids, photocopies and revisits as well the digital materials from the later years of her collaboration. Marina Faust is the only photographer to have worked with Martin Margiela throughout his whole career.
