Stumbling upon a box of forgotten Polaroid negatives, relics of my earlier photography ventures, was a nostalgic revelation. Among them lay images from personal projects and leisurely moments, spanning a decade of my life. To resurrect these memories, I embarked on a process of Polaroid negative reclamation, involving bleaching, washing, and drying. 


As I immersed myself in these reclaimed Polaroids images, memories flooded back, prompting me to construct and reinvent narratives from my past. Like memories themselves, these photographic emulsions crumble and fade, yet they leave behind visual whispers that invite interpretation and contemplation.
