i’m jealous of liz steketee


We all have childhood memories that probably aren’t exactly right. They are the way that you remember events and people, which may have been influenced by the story that your Uncle Ted told over, and over about that event/person, putting a picture into your head that you now believe to be a memory. Well, American photographer Liz Steketee didn’t want to be proved wrong by a photo, so she’s taken matters into her own hands with her series titled Reconstructed Memories. By scanning and combining her own family photos, she is able to truly reconstruct these images to conform to her personal memories or, in some cases, change things completely to the way she would have preferred life to be. And so now, thanks to Liz, Uncle Ted’s story will live on forever.
