In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you will find 13 photos that link 100 years of memories in Link. And if you can collect all these memory photos, then you will be able to unlock the secret ending.
Each memory photo directing to another location, and all these photos provide you with important information and stand for a major event that has happened during the past century. However, after some time it can be a bit frustrating, as it is not easy to gain access to the memory locations.
To unblock the quest with the memories, you must visit Impa in Kakariko. After completing the Seek out Impa quest and unlocking the camera for your Sheikah Slate, you must return to Impa. From her you will now get the Captured Memories quest.
Altogether, there are actually 18 memories, but there are only 13 memory photos. You will get four of the memories automatically in the course of the main story, and for the fifth memory, you must get the master sword. The other memories are recorded in the 13 memories. Once you have the camera in your possession, the first 12 memory photos will be displayed. You will not receive the 13th memory photo until you have visited the other 12 places. Because what you really have to find are not the photos, but the places that show the memory photos. By the way, the 13th memory photo is not really a photo, but rather a painting.
So you have to look for the places in the photos, which then restore some of the link’s lost memories. It then comes to wonderful intersections, which you can look at any time.
Below we will show you how to find the memory locations in the photos. Fortunately, the memories light up brightly when you are close to them. So you can hardly overlook them. If you have found such a place, go to the spot and press A to recall the memory. There is no exact order to visit in the places on the memory photos, only the 13th memory will be revealed to you at last.
