We all have moments we wish we could relive. We'd give anything to skid down the toboggan hills of our youth, to breathe in the smell of our children as babies, or to spend just one more minute with someone we've lost. Dear Photograph provides a way to link these memories from the past to the present, overlapping them to see how the daydreams of our memories collide with our current realities.
The idea is simple: hold up a photograph from the past in front of the place where it was originally taken, take a second photograph, and add a sentence of dedication about what the photograph means to you. The results, however, are astounding, which is why millions have flocked to dearphotograph.com and thousands have submitted their own Dear Photographs.
This stunning visual compilation includes more than 140 never-before-seen Dear Photographs, as well as a space for you to attach your own cherished photo. By turns nostalgic, charming, and poignant, Dear Photograph evokes childhood memories, laments difficult losses, and, above all, celebrates the universal nature of love.
This book is a beautiful piece and I'm happy to have found a convenient and permanent home for it on my coffee table.
Submitted my own picture back in nov. of 2012 and I would love to know if it made it in the book but I guess I will just have to buy the book for myself to find out.
What a fantastic concept the creator and author of this book had...loved all the photographs and especially the stories that accompanied them.
This wonderful book takes you back to an earlier time. The photographer was very clever in how he placed a current picture in the exact location of an old photograph. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Pamela W. Wheary

This book is magic for me. I hope to do some of the same with old photos of my family, and relish those times that will live forever ... in memory, and in dear photographs.Published 24 months ago by Mattersburger
love seeing the old photos and the things the photo taker says about them. I recently inherited boxes of old photos and am trying to select ones I can do this with.Published 24 months ago by Jody Mae
