The Momento Archive Project is a social media and storytelling website about the objects we hold onto.

Designed as a way to preserve personal artifacts and to share with others the reasons we hold on to them, this site was developed after losing a number of keepsakes after a flood. I started photographing objects I had in a documentary style, and sharing them on social media. Afterwards, people reached out to me sharing their stories of things that they also held onto, and I realized that I had touched on something universal. The point of photographing our objects is to compile our stories into a single place. Think of it as a cloud for our memories. There may come a time when we no longer remember these moments, or we move a great deal, or something happens to them. By keeping a digital archive, you allow yourself a little room to breathe, to feel lighter, and also the opportunity to take them with us wherever we go.


The ephemeral nature of these objects, and the fact that they hold my history as well as my families, I wanted to find a way to pass and preserve what was left of these objects, and their stories, onto my daughter in a way that made sense for her and myself.

Everyone has a box. Or a drawer. And no matter where we go in life, we take it with us. So it only made sense, that the place we go more than anywhere right now, is online. And much like backing up our digital life on the cloud, this way a way to do so with our moments. As someone always curious, I thought this would make an interesting as well as useful social experiment. Much the same way as the stories on Humans of New York, I wanted to tell those stories in a way that would reach a larger audience..

As someone always curious, I thought this would make an interesting as well as useful social experiment. Much the same way as the stories on Humans of New York, I wanted to tell those stories in a way that would reach a larger audience. As someone who loves both the analogue and digital worlds, it made sense to create something that could take something tangible and allow it to have another life virtual. The website, as well as social media channels, looks to others to contribute their stories and images, as well as offering tips on how to do so. 

The site was launched at Pechakucha with the intention of rolling it out to others formally in 2020.
