In this chapter we will look at several questions. What is the relationship between photography and memory? How can a still image/photograph produce or recall memories? What information do we get through photographs and through memories? How do memories transform through language and what does naming/defining memories do in terms of remembering and forgetting? How do the images/memories exist through projection?
In this section we will look at how our memories are transformed through speech and how they affect the process of remembering and forgetting. As an example I will use a very unique case, the work of Lindsay Seers, whose memory went through a very unusual process.
If I cannot recall memories of my mother, I experience a feeling of mourning. As if remembering is a responsibility even though I wonder how much of our memory is actually selective.

My daughter and I spent an amazing 3 weeks sighseeing around the south part of Iceland, and then up the north west part of Norway, to the Senja/Lofoten regions. For an Australian lad, who is so accustomed to wide-open landscapes, these regions were a massive contrast and my jaw almost got sore being blown away by the startling rugged beauty of these two countries.
I have always loved the skyline in Colorado during sunset hours, especially since being single. Trying to capture the beauty around me has been something that made me want to initially be a photographer. This was one of the first images I took that inspired me and made me feel like I could take beautiful photos. It also pushed me to want to become a better photographer.
Many of us today are working professionals who spend hours of our day at the office in our cubicle. It feels good to have your cubicle as it gives you privacy from your coworkers and makes you more focused on your work. However, after some time, you may get bored of seeing the blank neutral fabric on the cubicle walls, which is so simple and standard. It may make you think to give it a statement adding some things which showcase your personality by putting personal items. You can hang anything in your cubicle to add freshness and energy to your cubicle, and you can do this by adding specially designed stunning picture frames for office cubicles and your office.
