“An image is that in which the Then and the Now come together into a constellation like a flash of lightening.”

Walter Benjamin

The photos used in this work were shot in Iceland, but could have been created as easily at any place far from my home. I try to recognize the function of memory in a photograph, and I delete parts of the exposures so that they would resemble my memories, which cannot be reproduced by memory in their original form. I choose fragments of photos to delete based on a chance and an impulse, just like most of the photos this project contains. Any other part of the photo could have disappeared. I guess that in this form the images look like an Icelandic landscape illuminated by midnight sun, when most of the things you could see had disappeared from view.
