Actually the personal conclusion to mnemosyne mind shots is, that it is not possible to represent personal memory by photographs. Photographs tend to give an impression, an outcut of a scene, where splits of memories could be catched and recalled. Photographs tend to be personal sets for reminding to situations. As a documentary function, photographs might not be accurate without text. Also photographs might give wrong impressions of memories, when facing the past. In general photographs represent sometimes memories viewed different in the present as perceived in the past. To represent memories in actual photographs from the present to bring back the past means a turn back in time and space, time and space of memory as subjectively perceived. These images will always remain personal subjective artefacts, from the past or from the present.
