Regenerating Memories – Archives of Mine
by Emiko Nakajima
When we record the things and happenings we see or have them retained in our memories, we are apt to think that we are turning the present phenomena into the past ones. But in reality, the phenomena do not end there. The phenomena begin to be ready for their regeneration.
Photography has the power to shake our soul and bring our old memories to life. If that is the regeneration of memories, I regenerate my memories by engaging myself in photography.
It is not reemergence, but regeneration.It is not to reenact, but to live again.
It is to live anew.
Emiko Nakajima is a photographer based in Tokyo, Japan.
