We photograph to remember. We photograph to forget. Every picture we take ensures that we have something to return to should the moment it depicts slip from our minds. We don’t store snapshots in old photo albums anymore: Rather, apps turn the photographic documents into a constant flow of pictures which first and foremost share our iterations of the present. Uploaded in digital environments, information is added and new contexts affect their meaning, changing not only concepts of remembering and archiving, but the very „memory“ of the material that we use.
