Una Cartografía Verbo-Visual de la Vejez: Fotobiografías y montajes de memorias.

It is intended to discuss in this article questions related to a PhD research about the potentialities inside the photographical image, particularly when it comes to the question of how (through pictures) they build and organize the senior people’s memory. When in front of images, we are all invited to penetrate, in one way or another, in the thickness of a history to which it send us to revive and update the past through words and silence.

It is a dare to think a senior people’s memory as the place of a singular architecture and of the work of thought and reflection that unveils themselves on their own. The explanatory exercise that we offer have the intention to raise questions related to choices and shapes of photography assembly. Choices and arrangements that represent, we thought, a single photobiography or, simply, a visual autobiography.
