It happened to me to write that, after half a century in this profession, I came to the conclusion that the highest purpose for a photograph is to end up in a family photo album. I wrote it while the family photo album was dying, as it supposedly died once for all.
It turns out that when a cultural phenomenon changes or comes to an end, some people showing special sensitivity try to recover the sense and the value.
I believe this is what happens in this fascinating and unique book by Daniele Duca.
But, one thing is to create a family photo album - and I believe this is what a lot of photographers have done for a long time, namely all the photographers that knew memory and photograph as synonyms - another is to photograph various family photo albums fragments, â€œwhere, however, this life twilight remainsâ€�, as the Author writes. Like a moving farewell to both photography and memory.
