According to https://saint-martin-bookshop.com/, "Christian Boltanski’s 1948-1956 Photo Album brings together thirty-two photographs produced by his partner Annette Messager in 1972, in which he plays himself between the ages of four and twelve. This autobiographical and fictional reconstruction in which the adult Boltanski portrays the child Boltanski, produces burlesque effects by the play of scale on his body, which is too big and placed in environments which are too small."
