           What comics and photography have in common is that they both emerged in the early nineteenth century while giving shape to their authors’ imaginaries.  Isabelle Delorme, who is preparing  a dissertation at Sciences-Po on historical graphic memoirs, calls to mind the growing role of photography in graphic albums which have themselves been on the increase since the turn of the twenty-first century.  Hovering between subjective narrative and objective facts, such albums reactivate personal memories in accordance with the quite special codes memory establishes.  Photography plays a major role therein, as it always has done in “authenticating” reality.
