During Winter Term while taking Photography 1 and living at home, I was inspired by old photos and my surroundings. I knew I wanted to combine the past with the present as a photo project. I started with family photos taken in 2001 (with two extras from 1970 and 1991) and worked my way through old family photo albums. I lined these past photos up in the exact spot where they had been taken, only now with their current day backgrounds.
We often forget that the places where we spend our everyday lives hold many core family memories. From birthday celebrations, to holidays, to learning to ride a bike, to just everyday moments, we live life surrounded by these memories, passing them by every day, usually without noticing. It is important to cherish those moments. By revisiting these family memories, I am bringing them back to the forefront.
