Memento
by Rachel Wisniewski

project STATEMENT

Memento is a diptych portrait series based on the #MeToo movement that Rachel Wisniewski has been working on since October 2017. Wisniewski looked specifically to focus on the millions of stories of sexual misconduct that go unreported and unnoticed by the media.

The first image within each diptych is a current portrait of a survivor, and the second image is of the survivor holding a photograph of herself at the age when she can first remember being harassed or assaulted.

The definition of the word memento is “an object kept as a reminder or souvenir of a person or event.”

Coincidentally, memento has the word “men” in the center, with “me” and “to” framing it.
