Photography is synonymous with memory and history.
But what exactly is the nature of this
relationship? Photography can replace memories in
order to create and preserve moments in life.
Therefore photography becomes something that is
touched, whether in reality or the viewer’s
imagination, and helps drag its perception into
the immediacy of the present. Such use raises
questions about the differences between memory and
photographs in retrieving the past and acting as
momento mori.
