Memories are important parts of human existence. They help to connect people with activities and happenings in the past, which is essential to the sense of identity that an individual need for esteem and belonging. There is nothing as confusing as the feeling of being alone, without the ability to trace the past or knowledge of a link to anyone present. Memories are also important to impart knowledge and values into future generations: providing them with a glimpse into the times and nature of their forebears and offering the younger generation an option to carry on from where they stopped. Why do we preserve memories of our children’s childhood through videos and pictures? Why do we try to capture every important event of our lives – birth and birthdays, matriculations and graduations, marriages and anniversaries, vacation at different locations? The human memory is made up of neural pathways in the brain that are continually forming and redesigning themselves. As newer memories are formed, it would appear that the new memories superimposes on the old, which is why the farther away from an event one is, the fuzzier the details become. Also, the event begins to feel unreal, taking on a dreamlike quality that keeps it in the realm of abstracts. But when an event is recorded, you might hear people say as they watch it, “did I do/say that? I don’t remember doing/saying that.” As we grow older, we might struggle to remember little but important details, but thanks to technology, we can preserve the memories we make, as, over time, those fragments of time that are captured will be the only evidence that we ever existed. Photography is one of the easiest ways to freeze time and capture memories, and thanks to technological advancements in the 21st century through smartphones, almost everyone can take as many pictures and videos as possible per time. After a while, however, the pictures and videos might become too many, requiring a mode of filing and safekeeping for important future events. Or as a professional who has pictures as a catalogue of past work, one might need to ensure that the pictures are collated into an easily accessible unit that looks professional.
