Overview

Family is a poetic exploration of the universal theme of family, a subject which has had a long connection with photography since the medium began in the nineteenth century. Curated by Sophie Spencer-Wood, this book is a collection of 175 photographs taken by photographers, famous and lesser known, of their own families. It is an intimate study of the relationships - tender and awkward, knowing and innocent - that take place between adults and children in the family unit. Recognizable and relevant to us all, these emotions are linked in a symphonic sequence moving from one photographer to the next. With an introduction by Henri Peretz and notes on the photographs by Margaret Walters, Family draws on the same impulses that compel us all to take pictures of our own families.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The family album is the record of our own history, the visible evidence of occasions and outings, major events and small intimacies. This work looks at the professional eye turned inward, capturing the images of those closest to the photographer. Edited by Spencer-Wood (Gandhi), the collection features varied techniques and styles that are as much a reflection of changing attitudes as of new technology. Photographers like Dorothea Lange, Edward Weston, and Lee Friedlander offer visions different from those we have learned to identify with their oeuvre. Some photos are disturbing, but many are touching and immediate, with a personal resonance that evokes a sense of kinship between the viewer using the lens and the reader turning the pages. The lack of a formal order may be troubling, group sequences are interspersed with single images, and a photographer's work may be in a number of places. An interesting book, but not an essential purchase for most libraries, although it should be included in collections treating photographs and photographers.-Paula Frosch.
