PHOTOGRAPHS ARE A MORE MODERN WAY OF REMEMBERING, AND REMEMBERING IS A VERY COMPLICATED PROCESS. AS PAUL BOWLES WRITES IN THE SHELTERING SKY: “HOW MANY MORE TIMES WILL YOU REMEMBER A CERTAIN AFTERNOON OF YOUR CHILDHOOD, SOME AFTERNOON THAT'S SO DEEPLY A PART OF YOUR BEING THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN CONCEIVE OF YOUR LIFE WITHOUT IT? PERHAPS FOUR OR FIVE TIMES MORE? PERHAPS NOT EVEN THAT. BOWLES WAS WRITING ABOUT REMEMBERING IN RELATION TO DEATH, AND THE FACT THAT DEATH IS 'ALWAYS ON THE WAY' HAS A SUBTLE EFFECT ON MEMORY AND NOSTALGIA. THE IDEA IS THAT WE SOMETIMES TAKE FOR GRANTED THE PROCESS OF REMEMBERING BECAUSE THE DAY TO DAY 'BUSINESS' OF LIVING, IN ESSENCE, UNDERMINES WHAT REALLY MATTERS MOST – THE ESSENCE OF SOULFUL EXISTENCE. »
