The Art Of Memories

Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot (1796-1875) - Souvenir of Mortefontaine, 1864

'All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget. In this - as in other ways - they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it.'

John Berger
