Zelda: Breath of the Wild Captured Memories Locations
During one of the main quests, you’ll head over to Kakariko Village and speak with Impa. In case you’re done with Hateno Ancient Tech Lab and Purah, you should be able to receive 12 camera pictures on your Sheikah Slate.
These 12 pictures basically point to old places and contain memories of Link and Zelda. This will start the Ancient Memories and you’ll be asked to find all the memories in order to discover your past.

Memories Location #3 – Irich Plains
You need to proceed to the northeast edge of the Hylia’s bridge and towards the Irich lake. Once there, you need to head towards the nearby river and onto a hill with a visible tree. After climbing the tree, you should be able to recover the memory.

This one is located inside the Hyrule Castle, inside the Western Keep. You’ll need to head over to the second floor and into a walkway which should lead you directly to the memory recover spot.
Approach the castle from the moat bank, using your paraglider to cross the water. The Hyrule Castle map is 3D, like the maps for the Divine Beasts, and you’re heading to the top of the tower. Sneaking will be your best bet in the game.

Memories Location #13 – Despair
In order to recover this memory, you need to head over to the northeast edge of the Bottomless Swamp, near the east side of Hyrule Field. In this area, you should come across a small forested section in which resides the memory recovery location.
