What Purpose is the Family Album in a Digital Age?
"Family Pictures USA" views our family albums as documents of a PEOPLE'S history. We celebrate the ordinary vernacular images that people create every day as a lever to show the connections, shared values and common experiences that unite us all in our basic humanity.
We welcome you to post photos and stories that have been suppressed, forgotten and lost from the official history books!
Brought to you by Digital Diaspora Family Reunion (DDFR), "Family Pictures USA" is a new documentary-style television show that will focus on bringing people together to share family pictures and stories in a highly interactive and engaging experience known as Community Photo Sharing. The show will be a series of filmed CPS events with hosts and producers guiding participants through personal narratives in which their collected photos serve as storytelling tools.
Developed as a companion project to the award-winning documentary film, THROUGH A LENS DARKLY, and continues its mission to use the family album to break down barriers and create dialogues between generations and across cultures.
