Polish Family Member Elimination

There was this photo shop next door to our apartment when we first moved to greenpoint. A photographic process was used to eliminate family members from household images. No matter if it was a dispute with an uncle, a divorce, an unwanted child, this business specialized in the communist tradition of erasing visual history. It has since closed although it was a booming industry among eastern europeans.
