MOMENTO is a collection of human experiences and technological dreams triggered by our cameras. With each camera is a story told by its owner. The cameras were photographed using a19th century glass plate negatives, emphasizing how quickly the technology of past image-making has been made antique. The cameras capture our experience in mere fractions of seconds, but the cameras themselves also endure to reflect the technology and aspirations of their eras. The memories we connect to the cameras are significant, sentimental and cherished. The cameras themselves evoke memories of meaningful moments in our lives that are as vivid and vital as the pictures they captured.
This 85 page softbound book includes 40 stories and cameras.
From the Momento Project – a book of memories triggered by cameras is now available from Amazon for $19.95.
