From the daguerreotype of the 1850’s, to Kodak’s snapshot craze a hundred years later, to the countless photos currently stored in your iCloud—the history of family photographs is almost as long and varied as the history of photography itself. Unlike any other medium before it, photography allows us to capture the exact likeness of our loved ones. The act of taking photographs is both an affirmation and denial of death’s inevitability.
Family Photographs is a selection of images curated by juror Sara Macel exploring the ideas of family, memory, intimacy, and domesticity through the use of contemporary and archival photography.
