Critical Culture Thesis

"Residual Mnemonic"

In this essay, I will be investigating emotional connection and projected narratives through the study of photograph materiality. Much of this discussion will be based around a single photograph. It is weathered, beaten and browned with age. It has been torn, a third of it is missing but is a part of me, a small but significant personal artifact.

 

What makes this photograph different from any other photograph in the entire history of photography? How would someone else interpret the photograph if it was classed as “found photography”?

 

Although this object bears a personal connection, I will be analysing it as an object under photographic theory.
