Lie together, die together is a collection of images that work better as mental notes, sometimes just a reminder of a possible project to come, sometimes just falling for a strange aesthetic beauty. The memory images are at odds with photographic representation. From the latter’s perspective, memory images appear to be fragments —but only because photography does not encompass the meaning to which they refer and in relation to which they cease to be fragments—. Similarly, from the perspective of memory, photography appears as a jumble that consist partly of garbage.
