Lefcowitz, B. F. (2011). Memory and photography. Southwest Review , 96 (2), 231-239.

In her essay “Memory and Photography,” Barbara F. Lefcowitz ponders on the differences between remembered experience and memories awakened by photographs. She says, “Despite their similarities, a memory and a photograph can clash, even contradict each other” (p. 238). Turkle and Gundersheimer also provide examples where the memory and photographs may be different. How do memories preserved in photographs or writing differ from memories of impressions and sensations? How do we fill in the gaps between memories that do not seem to add up?
In your fourth paper, explore the idea of “the photoshop of the mind” (p. 235) that Lefcowitz speaks about in her essay. Consider the differences between memory and photography, the possible falsifying of the lived moment in either of them, and the creative power of memory.
