Photography Albums in Russia

Di, 16.10.2018, 15:00
Albums are common places to store and find photographs, but they are also peculiar things in themselves: they arrange pictures in structures of visual and textual narrative, imply the order of pre-fabricated or handmade design, combine pictures in a page to make a new meaning.
Photography albums can serve a range of functions: beside variables of autobiographical and family ones, albums can commemorate graduation, army service, a journey or a hobby, hold a collection etc. With all their variability, photography albums (like private photography in general) always obey to unwritten rules that can be traced by studying them closely.
