Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
Times Past: Pictures From The Old Family Album
Photographs are perhaps one of our most precious possessions, as witnessed by their being one of the first inanimate things people carry with them away from an impending or recently passed disaster. No wonder--they contain associations and memories of the ones we love, including those who are still with us and those who have sadly passed. But our call for pictures from the old family album this time is for those images that include yourself that might have special meaning or depict a cultural environment that has long since passed.
By way of example I include a picture of my brother and myself standing in our living room with all the proud accouterments of the 1950s--the "oriental" figurines, that post-modern TV set, and of course the clip-on ties. That magenta cast, by the way, is compliments of an Ektachrome 4x5 transparency, and is as much a part of an evocation of the time as the picture itself.
Of course, as we can't return images sent to us we need you to send a copy, either scanned or photographed, and then printed.
