Despite the evolution and progression of gender roles (thank god!), it seems that we women still live with strongly defined care-taking roles. For the most part, we are the ones making sure that children’s’ vital needs are met. But what if collecting your family memories was also considered a vital need?
If you’re anything like me, you probably have somewhere between five and ten thousand photos on your phone. Most of them you rarely look at, with the exception of those rare moments where your flight is delayed or the doctor is taking too long and you’ve got the time to flip through, endlessly.
One of the first things I learned when studying photography was the difference that exists in English between taking a photo and making a photo. In French you can only « take photos », in English you can « make photos ». I am drawn to what that implies.
