Fragmented Past

Fragmented Past

 It was August, the first month I had moved away from Greece and to the Netherlands. No job or money and I was spending a lot of time at home thinking of my past summers. Going through my 35mm negative rolls I realized that my memories had faded away and if it was not for the photographs my past would have been different. We tend to forget a lot about our past memories. Details get deleted. Our memory works like that. Using a text editor I deleted parts of the photos leading to new results.
