Medium: The Old Family Photos Project: Lessons in creating family photos that people want to keep. “My father was an avid amateur photographer. He loved to take pictures, he invested in expensive cameras, and I’ve plenty of vacation memories where he had one of those cameras in hand. But organizing the slides afterwards? Labeling them? No way. Pop threw the boxes of slides in big piles and said, ‘I’ll sort them after I retire.’ And, in preparation for his retirement, he put all those slides into five huge boxes — the kind you’d use to ship vinyl records. Whereupon, three days after my father formally retired in 1988, he died in his sleep.”
