Memories of my youth
The association of photography with memory is well known but memories become faulty over time and images can only represent a fragment of time.
Inspired by memories of my own teenage years, this project reconstructs scenarios using a cinematic technique. This suggests a relationship between the creation of memories and the story-telling of cinema while, at the same time, something mundane is rendered ambiguous and thought-provoking.
Viewers are invited to remember their own pasts, to re-connect with the emotions of youth and to question the authenticity of memories. What hides behind the surface of these images? Can we trust what we think we remember?
