Hello, I'm Cendrine Marrouat, a photographer. Ask me anything about reminigrams, a style of digital photography I invented.
I have always loved black-and-white photos. Tintypes and daguerreotypes, in particular, make my heart skip a beat. I also love the graininess and texture of Ansel Adams’ images.
Actually, I could write a book to describe my emotions when looking at old-fashioned photography.
My personal experiments with the black-and-white format started a couple of years ago. One day, I turned one of my shots into black and white and was immediately hooked.
A year later, I became interested in emulating old-fashioned images digitally. After some research, I realized that the process was very specific and that it would be impossible to do. However, when I got as close as I could, I decided to create my own style. I coined the term “reminigram” as a result.
The word combines two ideas: ‘reminiscence’ (a memory or the act of recovering it) and ‘-gram’ (something written or a drawing). Each reminigram depicts a scene from a past that could have been. You can see my ongoing series at https://www.cendrinemedia.com/Portfolio-Series/Reminigrams/.
