All kinds of things evoke memories of people who've died, and many of them come with an interesting anecdote. How do you capture the essence of a memory? Can it be done in 50 well-chosen words and a photograph?
The To Absent Friends Essence of a Memory competition ran as part of the Luminate Festival of Creative Ageing, from 1-16 October 2015. It challenged people take a photo and write up to 50 words which together evoke a story or memory of a dead loved one.
