Vernacular Photography Albums

Another in a series of award-winning catalogs - click to enlarge >>

Catalog 206 contains 44 vernacular photo albums, each telling a very particular story, usually of an individual or small group. Each of these albums, almost always “curated” by someone who was central to the actions and activities depicted, provides some sort of point of view that can, with either ease or difficulty, be decoded. Albums depict geographical locations, travel, occupational activities, hobbies and past-times, gender specific concerns, business pursuits, fraternal comradery, military experiences, and many other points of view.
