“There are in our existence spots of time
That with distinct pre-eminence retain
A renovating virtue, whence . . . our minds
Are nourished and invisibly repaired.” - William Wordsworth, The Prelude

The Romantic poet William Wordsworth penned the phrase ’spots of time’ before the dawn of photography as a way to talk about life-shaping moments in his past. Photographs though, are quite literally ’spots of time’. In photography, place and time conjoin with perfect specificity. Each photograph references a particular place at a particular slice of time.

Photography has majorly shaped the way memory works. We often remember photographs rather than actual memories. Many of us recall memories as still photographs rather than as moving pictures. This juried photography exhibit hopes to bring together photographs that hint at memory, photographs that integrate place and time in ways that conjure up nostalgia and longing.
