From 2002 through 2005, Bertien van Manen visited families all over Europe to take pictures of their private photographs.
 
With an essay by Juri Andruchowytsch From 2002 through 2005, Bertien van Manen visited families all over Europe to take pictures of their private photographs. In doing so she collected traces of people's lives, of happiness and sadness, of war and suppression, and she encompassed a century of history, across differences in culture and the meeting of human minds and hearts. Van Manen took photographs of photos from family albums, of photos hanging on walls, and of photos simply present in people's lives. With the advances of digital or mobile-phone camera technology, this means of keeping private photos and retaining memories and histories is slowly disappearing. From 1990 Bertien van Manen travelled through the former Soviet Union to take photographs of people and families. The resulting book A Hundred Summers, a Hundred Winters was published in 1994. In 1997 she started a similar project in China. East Wind West Wind was then published in 2001. Van Manen received several prizes and awards, including a nomination for the City Bank Photography Prize in 2003. Her photographs are in the collections of Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, Paris, Centre National des Arts Plastiques, Paris, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Collection la Salle, Chicago.
