Quyn Duong’s images look the way a memory feels. “Our memories are never exact,” she explains. “They’re blurry, imperfect, like a dream or a daze. The details are a little fuzzy, but we remember how we felt—everything between the nerves and the euphoria.” One way Duong captures these memories is by being as unobtrusive as possible and letting people take the lead in creating their own memories. “I want people to forget there’s even a camera between us so they can fully be present in their experience and their emotions. I love bringing out their unique personalities.”
