There is a complex relationship between photography, memory and truth.
The image appeals to both collective and individual memory. But what remains of people whose memory is eroding?
In memory, there is an abstract and imperfect representation of what is experienced. It is not uncommon to keep the best, sometimes the worst, only an image, a feeling or even an atmosphere. Nevertheless, what remains is tied to the thread of our emotions, which in turn remind us of our memories.
By absorbing the details, the specificities that guide the gaze, images stimulate thought and question meaning. The image becomes the property of the individual who looks at it. A path of thought that is difficult to control and that gives room for individual emotions and sensations.
Isn’t memory, fundamentally, the imagination of a real situation?
