We all love looking at family photographs, we create, keep and share family stories across time and distances.
In this workshop we want to explore how changes in technology and in family life have shaped our pictures of families and friends.
How have you recorded and shared special family moments over the years? Do you still use photo albums, or are you more likely to share photos on WhatsApp?
Some questions we will ask:
- How have changes in technology shaped the way we make and share family histories in photographs?
- Family life has also changed over time. How have the kind of family relationships we want to have and celebrate lead us to use photography in different ways?
The Science and Media Museum has a big collection of cameras, photographs and albums showing trends and developments over the years. For the workshops we will bring out some of the exciting things usually living their lives in the depths of our stores. They will help us remember and explore the changes in camera technology that have influenced how we take pictures.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our drop in sessions, hear your stories and see the photos, albums and bits of kit that have accompanied you over the years.
Or we can come to you! We are very happy to meet up with anyone interested in sharing their stories and photos anywhere that works for them. Just get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01274 302058.
