Photographic Memory

In the second week of class, we worked with the ideas of memory, using the text as an anchor. As memory is personal and frequently associated with a space, even one that you’ve only heard of, it evokes a response, and adds layers to what we remember, and HOW we remember too!

This week, work with the images below to craft a fictional anecdote– imagine YOU are in the frame–  based on the images below. Write about 150 words per image.
