The Anonymous Project, a collection created by Lee Schulman, where each image chosen to join it, is chosen because it has a story to tell.

Founded in 2017 by Lee Shulman, The Anonymous Project is one of the largest private collections of amateur color photographs from the 20th century. Comprised of approximately eight hundred thousand Kodachrome slides, this collection of images forms an incredible collective memory, moments of life lost in time. These anonymous photographs constitute a kaleidoscopic diary of that era, as fascinating as they are striking because they are imperfect. Often funny, surprising and touching, these images tell the story of our lives.

The Anonymous Project is an artistic process that aims to give meaning to these forgotten memories and offers new ways of interpreting and telling stories that question our place in the contemporary world.

The Anonymous Project in Normandy

The images selected especially for Storyville in Deauville reflect moments of shared life, emotions we can all relate to. Joyful, amusing or playful, each of these snapshots captures the hopes and dreams of each of us. They are a celebration of life, of our lives, and of a collective memory that belongs to all of us.
