Against Fleeting Memory: Four Generations of Daughters Captured in One Unedited Family Portrait
Recording, whether onto tape, video or photograph, is conceivable to nearly everyone alive now. That’s why when I found this video I was positively overcome. Four generations of beautifully inspiring women captured within one single portrait. The great-grandmother 101, the grandmother 79 and the youngest 29. Talk about heartwarming, it is nice to see the internet come up with videos like these and photographers like Chamonix Thurston-Rattue imagining a concept like it.
Since we all know nothing is guaranteed, at least there will be a photograph, somewhere, someplace holding us through time. Our voice or image translated into digital ones and zeros outlasting the chaos of memory and guarding what’s precious (thundering piano music).
