A Photographic History of Public Memory

I would like to invite my fellow scholars to visit my site The Memorial Project. This is a new, ongoing project to use photography to dosuments and interrogate public memory and American memorial practice. All content is mine, and all the photographs are captured on film (mostly Ilford Delta 400), a technology that is itself an artifact of history and memory.
