I am fascinated by the multi-layered interactions between photography and memory – not only the well-trodden metonymic and mnemonic properties of photography but also in the metaphorical aspects: the ways in which photography is similar to memory, or the ways one can use photography to symbolise or even simulate a sense of remembering – or more interestingly for me, its opposite: forgetting.
What I aim to do here is to visually depict forgetting. I want to evoke the sensation of forgetting something you used to know – in particular in these examples, people.
