A Man on a Mission to Show how Important it is to print photos
This is a portrait of my great, great uncle, taken in Paris during World War I. Incredibly, the photo studio is still in business and I am traveling there to have my portrait made in the exact location. Recreating a 100-year old portrait of my great, great uncle will undoubtedly be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But this trip is about more than recreating a photograph that is over a century old.
I’m on a mission to show how important it is that we print our photos. It’s about more than standing in the same photo studio that my great, great uncle stood in during World War I.
This journey is about what we leave behind to our families. Our time on this planet is short; we only have so many times around the sun. And print is the best way we can leave our story behind for 100 years and beyond. If, through this journey, I can inspire people to print more photos, make more family albums and create more art for their walls, I’ll fly home fulfilled.
This journey is a representation of my love for the photographic print and my dedication to future generations. So I’m taking this journey in the hopes that I will inspire others to commit to their loved ones and share their family stories through print. ~shared by @andrewfunderbrug @fundysoftwareinc
