Memories of the past are dictated by the present. Although no object is counted on more for it mnemonic technology, a photograph is not inhabited by memory, but rather produces it. A fugitive testimony to a moment lost, the image painted by light counterfeits an instance. The mutability of our understanding of history unveils the role imagination and photographs plays in remembering. Identity is constructed just as much on the memories you’ve chosen to keep then those you’ve chosen to forget, similar to the photos of yourself you frame or tear apart - versions of yourself that are acceptable or unacceptable. This series aims to deteriorate the positivist discourse of photography’s relationship with truth and shed light on the interconnections between memory, imagery and identity by focusing on universals.
