This thesis explores the relationship between memory and representation to photographic images. Through my practice of archive and image space deconstruction I investigate the ability of images to be traces of collective history and tangible representations of memory. My practice uses a feminist auto-ethnographical approach to challenge the notion that archives are assembled with objectivity. I deconstruct and fragment my own family archive as a way to address the way in which our preconceptions of photographic truth can lead to misrepresentations of identity and memory.
