To no surprise, I have dug my heels into a new project and body of work. While the theme is still evolving, I will share where it began. This started with me re-capturing memories of my past, revisiting places I haven’t been to in years, such as the house I grew up in, the park I broke both my arms in, and so forth. While I think having links of my own memories is important, I know stepping away to others memories will allow the viewer to step into them more.
This is where I need your help:
I’m doing a “Call for Memories”. Feel free to submit these anonymously, change names and place to protect people as needed, or even email me personally to share these. I promise to keep them as inspiration to fire my photographs. A way of transforming the memory so many may be able to experience it, even if they haven’t lived such a situation. Eventually I may display part or all of the memory with the photograph, but this is still yet to be determined. Please try to keep your memories around 2-5 sentences, and feel free to submit more then one. I am trying to look more into childhood memories, but feel free to share what you feel is relevant to the theme.
Feel free to comment here with your memories, email me at Sydney@SydneyWlodyka.com, or even write me a letter if you choose. Thank you for your help, and please share this with others to help with my project.
