The Memory of a Particular Image
Ricardo Rivera
Grace R. Cavnar Gallery

Our family photographs are the most intimate records of our lives. They shape how we feel about our past, about our loved ones and ourselves. We remember and misremember our history through these pictures; as our ability to recall fades with age, these images often supplant our memory. Can we trust these images? Do they tell us the truth about ourselves or do we create truths from what we see? Through a series of appropriated family photographs, The Memory of a Particular Image explores the malleability of our memory and how photography alters the way we experience the past.
