Our photographs are what defines us.
Today nearly everybody you walk past will be carrying a camera. Smartphones have transformed photography. You could slip on a banana skin in the street and the scene could be online and shared hundreds of times before you get to the end of the road.
Before smartphones, someone would have had to be pretty lucky to be there as you slipped, and for them to have had a camera with them. And to have had enough exposures left. And to have managed to take the picture in time. In focus, and from the right angle.
What people photographed then, is very different to what people photograph now, but the moments we manage to capture are the moments we remember forever.
See what treasures you have hidden in your family.
Before digital photography made it all so much faster, cheaper and easier, if something was captured on film it was usually because it really meant something to somebody. Time, care, attention and love was spent capturing life’s big events. How many of those moments do you have trapped in photos, in boxes somewhere in the loft, or attic, or with a relative?
Many people who first saw cameras become available mainstream are no longer with us, but their memories are – somewhere. Like hidden treasure. It seems incredibly sad that those stories might be lost. Unknowingly or carelessly thrown away.

With the average household home to around 3,000 old photos, as that weird old guy said in Jaws:
“We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”
Selfies… pictures of food… more selfies.
We’ve become used to sharing all kinds of mundane images.
But what about that photo of your Grandpa on a first date with a lady who would one day become your Grandma?
Your parents’ wedding?
Or your first ever plane ride as a child?
Chances are those gems are stuck in a dusty old box…
