the process

Photography alludes to the past and the future only insofar as they exist in the present, the past through its surviving relics, the future through prophecy visible in the present.

I think it’s interesting how we remember bits of our lives.


We are humans and we don’t own the capability of remembering everything. In fact, some memories don’t belong to us - they are simply fragments oftime that we perceive to be true. To that point, wecan be manipulated into remembering a different truth. I dare definitively say that it is illogical to pass the role of the memory to man but its role to the object instead.

The following personal images help contain the memory within the set context of the location - my definition of home.

Conclusion

I think the concept plays with the idea of time and light well since it involves capture of both movement and still objects within a single frame.

The subject matter could have been more interesting rather than my daily activities. It could’ve involved the daily activity of someone else that I could’ve studied.
