Forget Me Not, Geoffrey Batchen

I have recently been reading Geoffrey Batchen’s book ‘Forget me not: Photography & Remembrance. Within the book, Batchen speaks of the relationship between photographs, memories & remembrance. He says, ‘The photograph reveals a loved ones appearance, but the appearance provokes a memory that is hollowed out, disconnected from it’s own social realities of its own production and from those who are doing the remembering.’ pg.95.Screen shot 2013-02-12 at 21.44.06
