I find as a Theatre teacher working with high school age actors, one of the hardest challenges is helping student create memories for their characters.  Our students sometimes don't have that life experience to have a full understanding of what they need to portray on stage.

I came across the Dear Photograph website and I found it moving and touching. It provides such a strong visual representation of  memory and emotion.  It could be a great place for student actors to go to for inspiration for their character past.
