There’s something quite calming about paging through the cardboard pages of an album, hearing the crinkle of the plastic covering as we look at pictures of the people we love. Photo albums are a tangible piece of history that used to be so common in every day life. Everyone had their memories bound together, each picture telling a story, documenting someone’s life, or maybe even just a family holiday. People used to have stacks of albums in their cupboards or under their coffee tables, ready for the next guest to have a browse. These days, we carry our photos on our phones, documenting life through Facebook and Instagram. While a convenient space saver, these platforms don’t create the same memories, spur conversations, and allow us to relive our pasts.
