The Walther Collection presents Scrapbook Love Story: Memory and the Vernacular Photo Album, an exhibition of albums and scrapbooks from the 1890s to the early 1970s. Prevalent yet highly singular, the photo album is perhaps the most familiar format for viewing 20th century photography. From the invention of the handheld Kodak camera in 1888, to the widespread use of digital platforms for photo-sharing and storage, albums have always been a central vehicle for representing and unifying collective memories and social identities. Given their ubiquity and complexity as visual objects, it is surprising how little critical attention such albums have received as historical documents and artistic achievements. Compiled by everyday makers, these distinctive objects record experiences in love, war, friendship, and domestic tranquility. For more information click here
