Memoria is a collection of mobile photography work that explores the idea of memory and how visual media such as photography aids, influences and changes our perception of our own personal narrative.

In the past, memories have often been formed and retained through family albums, holiday snaps, letters from loved ones that have been stored in drawers brought out once a year as a reminder…fragments of our past relived in partial or blurred images.

The artists were inspired to fill the void using their mobile phones, giving the memory a level of creativity, a chance to rewrite the narrative, using the very same medium that aids in retaining memories.

The Mnemonics – Giulia Macario, George Politis, Maria Flourou and Kaily Koutsogiannis- are an Australian photography ensemble with members based in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney and are more than just a southern tale girt by sea.

Joining creative forces in 2013, The Mnemonics developed from individuals connected via virtual platforms with a love of storytelling as a common thread.

With a united idea to share and showcase each member’s unique artistic vision both nationally and internationally, The Mnemonics inspire each other and continually develop their story-telling abilities as individuals and as a group through the constantly evolving digital / photographic medium.

Inspired by the offspring of their matriarchal muse, Mnemosyne, the mnemonics’ aesthetic is based on the foundations and principles of traditional photography – a modern dance to a classic tune.
