Here's a photo contest that's going to call on all your mischief, idealism and (maybe) photo-trick skills too. Above all, it's a nod to the work of Lee Shulman, creator of The Anonymous Project, which collects thousands of old amateur photos, and Omar Victor Diop, a talented Senegalese photographer. These two artists, who met at a festival, had the good idea of collaborating on an astonishing project. Through the magic of photomontage, Omar Victor Diop's portraits are inlaid into The Anonymous Project's shots of ordinary American celebrations, with white middle-class families posing to celebrate birthdays, at the beach, in the middle of a barbecue or in front of their gleaming bungalow. Diop thus intrudes into universes to which he was not invited, in the context of post-war segregationist America, as if he had always been part of the setting.
