So I went through thousands of images and pulled out the ones that represented the family or a person, whilst considering certain compositional elements
In the background I also had to look through all my negatives going all the way back to the beginning of my career (5 years) just to only pull out 4 or 5 that I'd actually use fro the book. I wanted the negatives so I can print them on black and white paper and create the positives, to create the archive, to add to the family albums in effect. I selected recent images and a few old ones of my mother, father, grandparents and sister and printed to a similar size as the postcards that were sent when the chemical print was the only option, they were printed on 5"x7" Barclay black and white paper.
I printed for 3 days and made around 45 prints, copies.
