Memento Mori

Memento Mori is a reminder. A story about the fragility of life and, more importantly, the fragility of our memories. They say, in a true Achillean manner, that none of us will die, if we continue to live in the memories of others. It is what we tell ourselves at night to keep the ever-present fear of death at bay. It is our only feasible attempt at immortality. But if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, did it make a sound? If there is no one to uphold a memory, did it ever exist?

These photographs aim to preserve that memory when there is no one left to preserve it, when all other attempts at it have failed.
