The debut monograph by Australian photographer Mark Forbes: Collected memories
presents a cohesive blend of carefully composed scenes, from faded interiors and common, relatable spaces, to the romance of our environment being reclaimed by nature. Turning the pages there is a stirring sense of both subtle ordinary beauty and inherent personality sprinkled across each plate.
Forbes’ photographic preference, using medium format film, is slow and methodical - and this approach can be felt throughout the quiet pages.
"The more we see imagery of people, places and spaces, the more our individual memories are shaped by the photographs that we choose to hold onto.
As time passes and details fade, these photographs become our memories. As a result when an image is made, explicitly or subconsciously, decisions are being made about how things will be remembered.
While these images are my collected memories, they are here to be shared and possibly become yours too.
The series has evolved over the last 5 years and has coincided with a focus on mindfulness and meditation in my life.
All images were photographed on medium format film.
Good things take time."
