Rein Jelle Terpstra, Retracing, 2013 (artists book)
Retracing is part of a research project into perception, memory, photography and the possibility of imagelessness. For Retracing Rein Jelle Terpstra collaborated with people who are slowly losing their sight. He asked them about their most valuable visual memory and photographed these scenes for them on Kodachrome diapositive, thereby promising them to read out loud precise descriptions of the images years later, in an attempt to retrace these images in their minds. 
Before turning the project into a book, Terpstra used the images of Retracing in a tripartite slide-installation, in which the images slowly fade into one another. This phenomenon is represented in the book by alternating pages showing projections in the dark with pages showing the slides. The paper is slightly transparent so to create the effect of fading. 
Retracing is about parting and loss. Perception lost its naturalness, with photography getting an ambiguous role in the conservation of images.
