The series ‘Die Milchbriefe’ by Sarah Steffen, a graduate of the ‘Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie’ in Berlin, deals with the falsification of our memory as an unconsciously transformation of our minds. Thereby Steffen confronts herself with her own past and the extent to which we can actually trust our own memories. Did I really experienced this, or is my experience overlaid with collective impressions, films and stories I’ve been told? Who can be actually sure about this? Thus ‘Milchbriefe’ serve as letters from our subconsciousness, as a transmitter of memories into the present.
