A collection of memories.
Memories, they are not permanent nor are tehy accurate. 
They are re-created in the light of the present.
In his book ‘Camera Lucida’, Roland Barthes positions photography squarely in opposition to memory. He writes that; “not only is the photograph never, in essence, a memory... but it actually blocks memory, quickly becomes a counter-memory”

I revisited the island of Inis Mor, the largest of the Aron Islands of the coast of Co. Galway, Ireland. During this time I revisited and documented the landscape but described the memory of the scene at a latter date, described the scene from the photograph- thus altering the memory and remembering the photograph, and remembering it in the present.
