“There’s holes in my memory, it isn’t photographic.”
Dedicated to Christina Li, Watsky
I grew up with my mom telling me she “never remembered.” I would ask about her childhood, past life, loves, about our own family and she would just say she could not remember much. I was told that memory suppression is sometimes linked to trauma or abuse. Memories can be painful. “Holes in my Memory” is a project about memory loss and the recreation of stories that were never shared, cannot be remembered or can only be imagined but reveal themselves through found photographs and postcards.
The images are pigment prints on archival Kozo Select paper, hole punched and with cold wax.
