Using the circular frame I telescope back in time to reconcile distinct representations of past and present self. The images in this series are of people that I held close relationships with and spans over 10 years. These portraits question the accuracy of memories and the ultimately its impact on identity.

As a neuroscientist I am keenly aware that memories are inaccurate and are at best based on a true story. Reactivated brain regions become susceptible to change for a period of time, allowing new information or feelings to be inserted and integrated into our past experiences or potentially peeled away from psychological access. Individual histories are filled with blind spots and our brains fool us into thinking that our life story is cohesive.
