If a picture speaks a thousand words, we’re gonna need a bigger boat…
We live in a world with no shortage of photos.
But what’s their value?
How many photos are there on your phone? When’s the last time you looked at them? Have you ever sat around that tiny screen with your family, reminiscing about that lasagna you took a photo of in that restaurant on holiday a few years ago? Perhaps not.
We’re not saying modern photos aren’t awesome too. But we believe there’s an extra special magic about old photos, from decades past.
Our parents and grandparents were the first to own commercially available cameras. But they were expensive. As was the film that went in them. You didn’t waste exposures taking selfies, or photos of food.
Each photo was considered, special and was taken for a reason.
Each of these images is a snapshot of history; a moment captured in time. What stories lie in the past of your family. Now’s the time to find out. Because if someone doesn’t do something about them soon, they’ll be lost forever.
