Photographic Assignment Semester One
The brief here was Memory and Archive as a record of a selected moment in time, the (documentary) photograph still retains a primary purpose of being a record — a trace of a moment in time to become an archive or memory.
While delving though my collection of photos and keepsakes I came upon a collection of Richard Carrier cookbooks/magazines. They were put out in the 1970s and collected by my Grandfather, who was an enthusiastic cook. One of the recipes reminded me of a happy time I spent with him creating a Bavarian Cream and riding home with it hitched onto the back of my bike, much to his amusement. What I also realised is that I had a wonderful family archive of recipes that had been scrapbooked together, recipes collected by Mum and passed to me, personal recipes from friends and family, often hand written.
