United Kingdom




In today's digital age, the classic family photo album has become an object of nostalgic affection. But it is more than just a collection of sentimental snapshots. Celebrating everyday moments and shared experiences - from birthdays to weddings, first days at school to teenage parties - the family photograph offers an intimate portrait of Britain's post-war social history. From the first family holidays captured on Kodachrome to fond memories of waiting for the prints to arrive, from the father who photographed his son every day to a couple's touching love affair chronicled in pictures, the film offers a revealing portrait how of we have documented our changing lives. Using images and stories from different families and generations, the film charts a journey from the Box Brownie to Instagram, exploring the impact of new technologies and social attitudes in an entertaining tribute to the power of the humble family photo.
