Dear Photograph

Overview

We all have moments we wish we could relive. We'd give anything to skid down the toboggan hills of our youth, to breathe in the smell of our children as babies, or to spend just one more minute with someone we've lost.

Overview

We all have moments we wish we could relive. We'd give anything to skid down the toboggan hills of our youth, to breathe in the smell of our children as babies, or to spend just one more minute with someone we've lost. Dear Photograph provides a way to link these memories from the past to the present, overlapping them to see how the daydreams of our memories collide with our current realities.

The idea is simple: hold up a photograph from the past in front of the place where it was originally taken, take a second photograph, and add a sentence of dedication about what the photograph means to you. The results, however, are astounding, which is why millions have flocked to dearphotograph.com and thousands have submitted their own Dear Photographs.

This stunning visual compilation includes more than 140 never-before-seen Dear Photographs, as well as a space for you to attach your own cherished photo. By turns nostalgic, charming, and poignant, Dear Photograph evokes childhood memories, laments difficult losses, and, above all, celebrates the universal nature of love.

Editorial Reviews

Frank Warren
“Taylor Jones has found a new way to tell our stories. Dear Photograph is digital nostalgia of the highest order—it will make you smile, maybe cry, and go find your old family photos.”
Neil Pasricha
“Dear Photograph is a nostalgia bomb-bursting, braincell-twisting, heartstring-pulling roller coaster ride into the emotional unknown. Taylor Jones taps into our secret fears, quiet dreams, and loving pasts. These photos remind us that we’re human and remind us that’s okay.”

Meet the Author

TAYLOR JONES was inspired to start Dearphotograph.com as he flipped through old family photos at his parents’ kitchen table. The twenty-one-year-old came across one of his brother sitting at the same table and lifted it up to match the lines of the photo to what he saw in front of him, then snapped a picture of the picture. In a moment, Dearphotograph.com was born, creating an Internet phenomenon that has captured the hearts of millions from around the world.
