I Remember and I Forget is a series of still-life photographs of freshwater and saltwater fish caught and farmed around the world but purchase, for the most part, in Wonnacott’s Ottawa neighbourhood grocery store.

A lively and innovative essay by Lilly Koltun examines the aesthetic, environmental, metaphoric and political implications of Wonnacott’s compelling images.

Lilly Koltun won a curatorial writing award (short essay category) at the Ontario Association of Art Galleries Awards in Toronto in 2011.
