My mother dies when I was 18. We all have to face this fact of life at sometime in our existence. Here we get a quote from someone far more eloquent, Roland Barthes:
'I had acknowledged that fatality, one of the most agonizing features of mourning, which decreed that however often I might consult such images, I could never recall her features'.
I struggled to recall her up until I found the one photograph of her that remained.
