SYMPOSIUM: Photography and Memory: Plan

Informal and intimate

  • Family photographs; when we’re young
  • Remembering the moment around the photograph being taken
  • Remembering moments because of the photograph; constructed memory
  • Smiling in photographs: making happy memories out of what may be a bad day
  • Physical form: attached memory : digital image

History: The War

  • The photographers choice of image: his choice to represent that moments experience would be different to another’s
  • Control: Editing the series as with intimate photography



  • More reliable than the brain for holding on to an accurate depiction of a moment
  • Photoshop; the level of trust in an image
  • Taken a second later would mean a different memory
