Annali Juarez- Mandy Williams (2)

 Mandy Williams series Re-Collect mainly focuses on memory.  In this series, Williams goes back in time by finding old journals. After re-reading past events she put her diaries in water,and then began to freeze the water and the journals.  Williams explains that she “chose pages for the significance of their dates or for their entries. It was strange re-reading the past. It made me question how thoughts and events that we consider life changing alter over time, become embellished or distorted.”  The dates Williams chose to freeze and photograph are personal and it’s not important that we know the events that happened on that date. What I think works with this series, is that everybody can relate to dates and times that were significant.
