From the Jacket

We all have moments we wish we could relive. We'd give anything to skid down the toboggan hills of our youth, to breathe in the smell of our children as babies, or to spend just one more minute with someone we've lost. Dear Photograph provides a way to link these memories from the past to the present, overlapping them to see how the da...

TAYLOR JONES was inspired to start Dearphotograph.com as he flipped through old family photos at his parents’ kitchen table. The twenty-one-year-old came across one of his brother sitting at the same table and lifted it up to match the lines of the photo to what he saw in front of him, then snapped a picture of the picture.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nostalgia At It's Finest Within the first few pages I was hooked on Taylor's story of how Dear Photograph came to be. Having seen Taylor speak at numerous events I had heard it before but to see in on paper drew me in even more. I hadn't even hit the pictures yet. So many beautiful memories that I read the book from front to back without stopping. The idea of being able to live in a moment from the past just one more time left me crying, laughing, smiling and wanting to go back in time. Despite being based on images, Dear Photograph is not light reading. It is a beautiful, emotional reminder that some things never change and we are better because of it.
