Redefining The Family Album In The Digital Age

We use the ordinary vernacular images that people create every day as the lever to celebrate the connections,
shared values and common experiences that unite us all in our basic humanity.

"I was 10 years old when Malcolm X was killed in 1965. Then, there were Elijah Muhammad's followers on the street with black neck ties and suits. I remember one day my father said, "Don't become involved with them. Get your money and go to school." He gave me 50 cents for lunch. I went right up the street and bought Muhammad's newspaper because I wanted to know. As a teenager, I wanted to emulate Malcolm when I got old enough to understand what he did and what he represented. I even had a pair of glasses like him. This was a picture that I liked...The poignancy of him pointing his finger to the side of his head evokes a person to think." -Robert Rudd bit.ly/20Rhj4I ... See MoreSee Less

"This is a 1944 photo of my Grandma Yasu holding my father in her arms, my auntie and uncle. They are posing in front of their neighbor's tar paper barrack in the Minidoka concentration camp. I love this photo not only because I love my family deeply, but because of its vibe of normalcy. They had already been imprisoned (first in horse stalls at the Puyallup fairgrounds) for two solid years yet they persisted and resisted." -Erin Shigaki ... See MoreSee Less
