How this has to be told

  • Point Green Studios 260 Java Street Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

“But as troubling as it might be to suddenly learn that I was not in fact the author of my imagination, it lead me to another realization: I learnt about the power of images. If all of those memories remained vividly in my head, it meant that people could create visuals that will stay with other people forever. It meant that I could do that too.”

How this has to be told is a 35mm slideshow that investigates family photos and mementos to question how much they reveal…and how much they silence. 

Why can't our family recordings just be images? 

Why do we burden them with so much responsibility of being something else? 

How this has to be told is a collection of responses at the intersection of photography, memory, belonging, and the loss of innocence.
