Forgotten Memories, a book by New York gallery owner Laurence G. Miller, explores the power of images to awaken memories, to take us back to relationships and journeys likely to be otherwise forgotten. Culled from several thousand negatives and slides taken during Miller’s first five years into photography, the pictures are sequenced more by their visual relationship to each other, rather than a strict chronological order. The resulting sense of randomness more accurately reflects how we actually recall old friends, romances, tragedies, and moments of pure joy. The World Trade Center is juxtaposed with spilled lumber by a highway in Wyoming; the Mormon Tabernacle is the neighbor to a larger than life head rising from a rural Wisconsin field. The ambiguity of memory is heightened by a mixture of positive and negative images intertwined through black and white and color.  The author hopes the viewer will be stimulated to recall his or her own memories previously lost to the past.
