"Unlike any ordinary family album, this isn’t exclusively addressed to the family it portrays, but also to the anonymous spectators who give it its status as a work of art.”  Henri Peretz


“Most of the photographs were made by or for people in the ordinary course of their lives. They were intended to be family keepsakes, not objective documents. They showed what people where proud of, thought interesting, and what they wanted to show others.”
