MOTHER IN HER MEMORIES



I was always astounded, as a viewer, about the deep and mysterious connection people make with their past through looking at their old photographs, specially when they start getting older. Encouraged to discover more, I began to ask old or mid-aged people to look at some of their old photographs together, and recorded their facial expressions and at last asked them: how do you feel? The answers were very varied; like one said she feels that little girl in the old photograph is her daughter and not her-little-self, or another responded that he is not very sure what he was reading in that photograph and is very intrigued to know!
Mother In Her Memories is a self-directed work I did with the same motif.
