Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Part essay, part memory—this piece finds the perfect form to explore the pictures that might rely most for meaning on the stories that accompany them: family photos. This article appears in the Summer 2011 issue of Southern Cultures: The Photography Issue. "‘It is in fact hard to get the camera to tell the truth; yet it can be made to, in many ways and on many levels. Some of the best photographs we are ever likely to see are innocent domestic snapshots.'"
