Remembrance of Things Past.

'Awakening in his dark room, Marcel finds himself in a photographic space. What whirls before him in this dark space is not only the changing, unseen walls, the doors, the furniture, but also all the things, places, and years that remain written within his memory. Like a spectator in the dark projection hall of a cinema, he encounters a succession of images moving before him with rapidity that, in bringing together the past and the present, prevents him from orientating himself in relation to either the image, the past, or the present.'

Eduardo Cadava discussing Marcel Proust's 'Remembrance of Things Past'.
