them to anyone with a minute, and I saw that many people were genuinely moved by the images.  The snapshots, in particular, triggered memories.  People easily told stories that illustrated their sense of kinship with the subjects in the photographs.  The “family” of snapshots grew as friends and clients contributed their favorite images.  I also purchased anonymous albums and forgotten boxes of prints and negatives and I still continue to adopt any photographs that need a willing home.
