This is a really provocative image--and a provocative idea as well, that sense of a past visible as such within the present. It brings many things to mind for me, from lots of different registers--from Sterne trying to make the dead present or freeze the passage of time while still making its passage felt, to Joan Didion and her unremembered snow. And then of course there is Barthes. As soon as you started talking about this project, I couldn't get _Camera Lucida_ out of my head.

I have more thoughts, which I will send via email instead of hijacking your comments...

I mean to reread Camera Lucida. And some other classics on photography as well. The plan is to start including theoretical entries here and there as complements to the autobiographical ones. I imagine, if the last paragraph of this entry is any indication, that I'll also be dabbling in psychoanalysis.
