When memories of the past come echoing into the present, tears fill the eyes. Remorse, regret, longing and nostalgia fill the heart. Old forgotten scents fill the nostrils. Sounds long silent become audible again.
Each picture from the past, when held up to the very spot in which it was taken -- in the light of today -- gains a new luminance. And the viewers of this book are allowed to share these moments of the past juxtaposed with the present... and the private becomes shared and universal. The photograph of a stranger's long-dead father becomes strangely moving when superimposed on the same old sofa he used to sit in. And we never knew the man.
Highly recommended for anyone who wishes to be taken on a journey of nostalgia and unexpected discovery. And don't be surprised if you find yourself weeping over a picture of a lost parent, lover, friend, or brother of someone you've never met.
