This project, as well the history of vernacular photography, intersects cultural memory and transformation. For just over 100 years, personal cameras and their self-generated photographs have existed as a means for everyday people to chronicle, interpret, and reinvent the spontaneity, loss, love, humour, and pain of lived experience. Unlike a single snapshot, which captures a discrete moment in time, photo albums are a deliberate organization of personal and social experience.
