pictures tell the story

Viewing the photographs in the family albums tells Our Story.  I no longer maintain a Family Album.  In this digital age, the snapshots are retrieved from a CD.  Progress?

Early portrait photographers stressed the importance of the photograph as a moral stabilizer for families and the social fabric, “… family photographs sustained sentimental ties in a nation of migrants.” (Alan Sekula, 1986)

In many cases, photographs are the only biographical material people leave behind after they die (Boerdam, Martinius, 1980).
