Photo exhibit explores memory loss

thumb_FarmHouseTowers2010Leah Gose's exhibit, "What I Remember," is an exploratory photographic series that captures and preserves memories in the form of photographic objects. The exhibit continues through Sept. 15 in Gallery Two of the Appalachian Center for Craft. Exhibition hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily.

This body of work investigates memory loss and personal fear of forgetting by attempting to physically preserve mental impressions before they are entirely forgotten.

"Memory loss has been a long-term personal fascination for me because of personal experience with my grandmother's struggle with Alzheimer's disease," Gose said.

She is currently assistant professor of photography at the Memphis College of Art. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
