GRIEVING AND GRABBING

The 13th of November 2015 was a sad day in Paris. It was day of the Paris terror attacks that shocked not just France but the whole of Europe. It planted a fear into our minds, which may be pushed aside, but can’t really be completely forgotten. It changed our lives. One year on, Parisians gathered outside the places where the attacks had happened to lay flowers, to light candles, and to remember the victims. Also to take photos. Photos of the flowers, photos of the candles, photos of the people mourning – and pictures of themselves in those places. I found myself also taking pictures – but even more I found myself wondering what we will all do with those millions of pictures taken on that day. It seems that we have lost the ability to be in a moment – as if we had to keep it to maybe be in it at a later, more convenient, date.
