There is always an idea or story behind what I photograph. I very rarely take photos that I set up with people (or at least not their faces) in them. I do this because I like to focus on the concept of memories. I want the viewer to imagine what it would have been like if this was part of their past. I do not want to bias it with a face, but it leave it open for the imagination. Maybe it’s familiar scene, maybe it isn’t- either way I leave room for memories to form or reveal themselves to the viewer. A quote by L.M. Montgomery states “nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.” I like to think I use this idea in my photography. Whether it happened or didn’t isn’t the point, it is drawing it out of the mind and revealing it to others.
