Hey Janna! Your family archive is amazing, from what i've seen so far. I think maybe that a disproportionate number of photographers have interesting family archives (passed on through the genes, or socially?), and i've always thought it would be an interesting project to somehow swap archives and do an edit of another photographer's family's photos. Nuts? I have been thinking about how to incorporate my mom's work into my own, and I will someday…. but for now the photos live in the studio.
It sounds like we’re in similar situations. When I started taking pictures of my family in South Carolina last year, I was trying to figure out how to fit my dad’s work as a photographer in with my own. Now my parents have moved back to Philly and I’m scanning these old photos and making new ones at the same time and things are a lot more complicated than I thought they were going to be.
