The photographic series “memory invented/ invented memory” draws attention to the permeability between the remembered and the imagined. These photographs remind us that what we choose to see is invented through our gaze. The global image juxtaposed with clips and close-ups produces a narrative: from the panoramic to the particular. Play with positive and negative colour bring attention to imagined possibilities.
Linda Briskin has been taking photographs for years. In recent years, she has had several solo shows: “An Hour from the City” (2007), “Counterpoint” (2009), “Ode to Julia Margaret Cameron” (2009), and “Photoglossia” (2010). “Symbolic Ambiguities,” a joint show with Kye Marshall, was at G+ Galleries during the 2008 Toronto Contact Photography Festival.
