Family signifies (elective) affinity, blood ties, sometimes lifelong attachment, and above all the repeated renegotiation of borderlines. This publication highlights the different forms that the depiction of the family can take in photography and art: photographs document everyday family life and capture emotional moments. In photography, family members can also become cooperation partners in the process of determining the image. In the context of genealogical projects authors seek to explore their own life story by way of that of their ancestors.

In an innovative interplay between photography and text, this book approaches a highly topical social theme. If provides fresh impetus towards understanding the family today and fans out the relationship between family and photography anew.

Das Buch erfreut durch seine klare Gestaltung der Bildstrecken, aber auch durch seine einfallsreiche Typografie. Als Broschur mit offenem Rücken und Fadenheftung lässt es sich auch bequem ganz aufschlagen und »klammert« nicht. (Rudolf Paulus Gorbach, Typographische Gesellschaft München, 17.07.2022)

Kurze Einführungen im sehr ansprechenden Katalog erläutern auf ebenso prägnante wie einfühlsame Weise die künstlerischen Positionen. (Helmut Dworschak, Der Landbote, 15.07.2022)
