 _ Work / “Memory Palace” (Endless project) 

There’s an ancient mnemonic technique called the “Memory Palace” that consists in mentally recreating a visual path of well-known places to associate them with a list of new elements positioned along the way.

Inspired by this technique, I’ve initiated an endless photographic work about memory. An introspective series, structured as a book, and visually depicting the way we access to our mind and we remember things. A project in which I explore in the form of souvenirs, sometimes deconstructed and abstract, sometimes constructed and precise ; the cartography of my own memory. A journey through childhood memories, daily tracks and hazardous situations.
