recollection

Sometimes I forget he is no longer there. 

Sometimes I push him away. Sometimes I change him.

Memories arise when I am not looking for them.

When I am looking for them, they are nowhere to be found. 

 

Recollection is a photographic investigation on how you remember some on who is no longer there.

Often I wonder if what I want is possible; Can you show something so intangible as “how you remember and forget someone” using the medium of photography? Do I ask something impossible of myself and of the viewer? Perhaps this is inconceivable - yet perhaps that is the beauty of the project.
