Maybe Memories

BY ZARANIS NATACHA
@ VOL 10 ON JUL 01, 2015

Natacha Zaranis, art photographer, introduces her work to PechaKucha. Her artistic process involves bodies, portraits and landscapes which embody moments of her life leading to the universality of what they represent. She tells stories of a fantasized reality, which may sometimes seem strangely down to earth. Despite their apparent softness and spontaneous aestheticism, her pictures can be unsettling: far from being innocent, they reveal an underlying concern about absence and the idea that a shift can happen at any time. {In French}

In Memory of Albin Oskarsson

This is a photo of Albin Oskarsson (taken by Thomas Bergh) presenting at PKN Gothenburg Vol. 7 on April 9, 2008. He was a bit nervous ,and twisted and turned on stage while presenting personal photos he had taken of his friends and the quirky stories behind them. We all liked Albin from the start, and he later became our event photographer of choice. He took some of the best photos of PechaKucha we've ever seen, before following his dream and moving to Charmonix for a life of adventure. Albin was happy in Charmonix. In this post is a self-portrait he took and uploaded with the caption "My family, my toys, and my favourite obsessions." Sadly and unexpectedly, Albin passed away in March of this year after an avalanche accident while snowboarding. In memory of Albin, and with the permission from his family, we're releasing some of his PechaKucha photos under a Creative Commons license BY-NC-SA. You are more than welcome to download and use the images below in all non-commercial projects, such as PechaKucha, as long as you credit Albin Oskarsson. Download link for PKN Gothenburg photos by Albin Oskarsson. And remember, today is always the best day to tell someone how you feel about them.

A New Picture House

In the spirit of the James Joyce's first Cinema, Volta, established in 1909 in Dublin, where showing obscure Italian arthouse films was pushing the envelope of what cinema could mean, Harrison and 15 cohorts took it upon themselves to open a new picture house where they too would push the expectations of film. In this unique presentation, he shares his story, and the stories of others who share his vision. Get some popcorn!

The Beginning of Memory

"The story of Buffalo is inextricably linked to the notion of memory. That memory is now in danger." In The Beginning of Memory from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 14, Spanish architect and academic Miguel Guitart remembers the importance of Buffalo's signature past and visual legacy that has made the city unique, and compels the audience to slow down enough to observe it for themselves, together on a quest to find it's soul once more. In this beautiful poetic performance, he shares a series of ephemeral photos of the city, titled "Americana" with music by Philippe Rombi and excerpts of Laurie Anderson's "The Beginning of Memory", illustrating that despite PechaKucha's fixed format, presentations can take all forms.

Can Memory be Restored?

"Some memories actually emerge to protect us from danger." in "Can Memory be Restored?" from PechaKucha Night MaastrichtVol.31, researcher from Germany at Maastricht University,Sarah-Anna Hescham wants to show us new ways that are being explored to deal with and even restore memory loss. Remembering and forgetting are two important sides of the same coin that help us manage our day to day lives. We do not need to remember everything, just what is important. But for some people, especially older people, forgetfulness can happen more often... Is there a cure?
