Acts of Remembering

Giuditta has just graduated from Camberwell College of Art’s Photography Department. She writes of her extraordinary photos on glass…...
“The idea is inspired by a passage in the novel ‘Slowness’ by Milan Kundera, in which he states that “there is a secret bond between slowness and memory, between speed and forgetting.” The subject is asked to remain still and perform the act of remembering a specific time in their life. A personal photograph of their past is placed by the camera to trigger the reminiscence and focus the mind. The old photograph is the bridge between past and present moments. During the long exposure, the fleeting expressions of sometimes real and sometimes feigned emotions are gone, and we are left with the foundation of a face.”
