The rabbit fast explosion of digital imaging saw the family album replaced by photo streams and online galleries. Family photography today is for the most part a disposable enterprise. This series from photographer Nan Brown explores youth in slow, segmented remembrances. The resulting images are not snapshots but artifacts of shared experience.
Her project statement reads:
My children allowed me to photograph them, to explore my view of them – perhaps revealing as much about my character as theirs – but I hope with honest insight into theirs. They simply trusted me as their mother. That intimacy of view is a privilege I have tried to respect.
