The Fall of the Family Album


'The Fall of The Family Album' is an installation piece exploring the digitisation of family snapshots. An intimate, private collection that once existed as part of the physical world has been translated by digital technologies into a fragment of code and pixels. By corrupting her own family photographs, Smith creates a visual representation of the cultural and ontological change of vernacular photography. 'The Fall of the Family Album' was exhibited as part of Saturation Exhibition at Crusader Mill, Manchester.
