A visual exploration of the creative outpouring made possible by the camera. Friends, family, travel, domestic life, special occasions, the workplace, farm and city lifeÑthese were all intermingled in early albums in surprising and dynamic forms. Men, women, and even children became the creators of their own visual biographies, and documenters of previously unprecedented aspects of American life. Four essayists weave together the history of the photo album, making them not just a part of our past but a significant aspect of Americana. Designed by noted graphic designer Martin Venezky
