Memory And The Image (Publication)

The publication is a 10×8 photographic print ratio and is 584mm width by 233mm double page spread.  This publication is based around false memory and how our relationship with taking photos effects our memory in and the possible advantages and disadvantages it has on us in the digital age. As technology advances and smart-phone cameras get better we take more and more photos that we can later look back on to remember events. But is this causing us to remember things better or causing us to forget things and aspects about the event. Also is sharing photos of ourselves and aspects of our lives causing us to remember things in a fixed narrative not allowing change. The goal was to make people aware of the possible advantages and disadvantages that taking photos of something is having on their memory.
