Why Document and Photograph Your Own Life?

Your life is the ultimate photography project:


When I look at my old photos, they spark my memories. For example whenever looking at my old photos, I remember the context in which I shot them. Who I was with, how I felt, what I was currently experiencing in my life at the time.

What happens if you forget?

What are the negative consequences with forgetting? My thought:

You recount your life as less epic and grand.

For myself I desire to look back on my life with deep gratitude— recounting all of my wonderful life experiences.
