Our Old Family Photos are Artifacts of Our Existence
“To collect photographs is to collect the world. Movies and television light up walls, flicker, and go out; but with still photographs, the image is also an object — easy to carry about, accumulate, store.” – Susan Sontag
They are artifacts of our existence. They are moments, memories and meaning.
Here’s a simple but wonderful example.
This is my great-grandparents getting goofy in a photo booth.
It was taken in a matter of minutes in the 1960s, yet the image is as alive today as it was back then.
I am so lucky to have it. ~ shared by @evangeline_thefallofeve
