Memento By Jessica Cowley
Memento looks at memory, history, time and family. It is an exploration into the life of my Grandfather, who died before I was born. The only memories I have of him are from the stories I have heard and the photographs I have seen. Memento features a mixture of photographs taken by myself and from my familyâ€™s albums. In order to discover more about my Grandfather I visited and photographed the places that meant something to him, whether it be the places he lived, worked or enjoyed. By visiting these places I have created my own memories and therefore a connection between my Grandfather and myself.
