Reflections

An emblem of memory, the photographic portrait serves as a recording of our memories. Yet, unlike a photograph, which is inherently still, our memory is creative and ever changing. In re-examining a past portrait the viewer can create new notions of its meaning to us. This act of re-remembering reinterprets these moments. In doing so, we re-embroider our past, as some recollections get sharper, brighter, more magnified, while others fade and become blurred. Remembering and forgetting become intertwined and unverifiable. Our reflections of our narrative Self become fragmented as they are caught in a constant state of metamorphous.
