Family photographs may serve to show us the past, but what do we do with them? How do we use them? Who do we show them to? It seems that the Family Album is more about today than it is about yesterday. It is an object of performance - it discloses traces of our most presentable moments, traces of our previous lives that are available for display, to be shown and shared, to be talked about. Focusing on the domestic in relation to patriarchal capitalism offers an opportunity to understand the family album. Women's control over this object permission used as a tool for meaning making - one in which women express agency, claim their voice and declare the complexity of humanity with respect to patriarchy.
