Vintage is a micro doc co-produced with Josh Mayes that follows the creative process of photographer, Tyler Orehek as he photographs his young children, Tyler and Lauren, within the context of historical scenes. Through his art, Orehek has developed a unique bond with his kids. To them, he is both photographer and father. Vintage is a glimpse into this complicated relationship and the challenges Orehek faces in capturing the perfect frame.
Orehek recreates the past in all of his work. He was inspired by listening to his father’s elaborate and emotional stories of enduring the Great Depression. Every aspect of his photographs are meticulously researched and reproduced; from finding the location, to procuring period-accurate clothing and props, to posing his subjects. The result is a collection of timeless images that are both beautiful family portraits and striking works of art.
