When everything else is gone
Past. Present. Future. Melded together. Memory fades. The tree of life. Love and death. Time swirls into a blur. Faces disappear. Illusions. What once was, now is not. What ceases to exist stays the same. History repeats itself. "When Everything Else is Gone" is a photography project that explores the fragile relationship between human connections and the concept of memory. Through a series of evocative photographs, the project delves into the ephemeral nature of memory and its impact on our understanding of the past and its repetition in the present. These images are intentionally blurred, distorted, or otherwise manipulated, serving as a metaphor for the unreliability (and perhaps malleability?) of memory and History. The project draws parallels between the ideas of personal and collective memory, questioning the subjectivity of recollections, as they can be influenced by time, perception or individual biases. At the same time, it tries to raise questions about how History (personal or otherwise) tends to repeat itself, often fueled by the fallibility of memory and the failure to learn from the past. Overall, "When Everything Else is Gone" is an invitation to reflect on our own memories, how they influence our relationship with the world and what role we will allow them to play in future decisions.
