A Picture Isn’t an Object

My daughter recently shared this quote by Jim Flannigan with me. It struck a chord with me as a family historian. Having a photograph taken back in the day truly was an event! But more than that, those family pictures are a time machine of sorts. They transport us to that moment, captured by light and lens.

“A picture is not an object. A picture is an event.” Thank you, Jim Flannigan.
