“Memories of our experiences connect to form the basis of who we are as individuals. There appears to be a strong connection between human memory and the photographs we take.

Simply put, a photo is information about past light that we can perceive in present time. Similarly, memories are the affects of our past experiences on our present self.

Time can alter and distort our memories, but in the photographs we keep those memories are revived anew, allowing us the pleasure of revisiting places and times spent with friends and family.

Marcela Ochman’s constructed photographs commingle images from the past and present, enriching her compositions with a deeper subtext involving time, places and people that inhabit her most cherished memories.”
