✏Doing Family Photography Book Summary : Family photography, a ubiquitous domestic tradition in the developed world, is now more popular than ever thanks to the development of digital photography. Once uploaded to PCs and other gadgets, photographs may be stored, deleted, put in albums, sent to relatives and friends, retouched, or put on display. Moreover, in recent years family photographs are more frequently appearing in public media: on posters, in newspapers and on the Internet, particularly in the wake of disasters like 9/11, and in cases of missing children. Here, case study material drawn from the UK offers a deeper understanding of both domestic family photographs and their public display. Recent work in material culture studies, geography, and anthropology is used to approach photographs as objects embedded in social practices, which produce specific social positions, relations and effects. Also explored are the complex economies of gifting and exchange amongst families, and the rich geographies of domestic and public spaces into which family photography offers an insight.

✏ The Family Photography Project Book Summary : The idea that homes and schools should be partners in educating children has become common in many sectors, from grass-roots community organizations to government agencies. This relationship has a history of barriers. This research integrates an examination of the colonial and neo-colonial foundations of those barriers within the pedagogical context of transformative education. It draws on the work of two recently deceased educators: Brazilian Paulo Freire and the founder of the New York City College Workshop Center, Lillian Weber. the Family Photography Project distributed cameras and film to nine families in a New York City public school populated primarily by Latina immigrant families. Participants took photographs of their children's learning in their homes and communities. Family members met regularly to collaboratively edit and discuss their photos. They categorized their photographs into broad themes of learning. Then Spielman meshed the participants' themes into still broader categories and created the Family Photography Project's Museum of Teaching and Learning. She and the participants used this exhibition to disseminate their research findings to teachers in their own school and at the City College of New York. Using the data from the families and the teachers with whom they met, Spielman affirmed her informal knowledge from 20 years of classroom teaching and 10 years as a staff developer in New York City Public Schools: Parents are conscious of what they convey to their children, whether or not they call it "teaching." This project supported parents to become aware of their importance as the first and primary teachers of their children. Then it began to convey this information to teachers so they could develop curriculum based on what educator, Luis Moll, refers to as families' funds of knowledge. This dissertation explores the questions: Who makes knowledge? What is it? How is it made? It examines the role of photography in revealing what was hidden. Finally, it investigates how to develop the necessary supports teachers need to build equitable partnerships with families.

✏Half in Shade Book Summary : A treasure trove of lost family photos illuminates a singular perspective on family, memory, and history in this hypnotically enjoyable memoir. When Judith Kitchen came across boxes of family photos in her mother’s closet, the discovery sparked curiosity and speculation. “Over a ten-year period, Kitchen worked on Half in Shade, trying to come to terms with an inherited collection of family memorabilia that enlightened as much as it confused. . . . Most compelling is her attempt to find out the things she does not know but suspects about her mother, including an unexpected romance” (BookSlut). Piecing together her memories with the physical evidence in the photos, Kitchen explores the gray areas between the present and the past, family and self, certainty and uncertainty. The result is “part memoir, part speculation, part essay” (Stuart Dybek). Half in Shade is a lyrical, ennobling anatomy of a heritage and a family; of mother-daughter relationships, and recovery from illness. It is a voyage of memory that captures with precision the forces of the heart and mind when “none of us knows what lies beyond the moment, outside the frame.” “Kitchen’s book lets you know what a keen eye coupled with an alert and sensitive intelligence can see.” —Publishers Weekly “Kitchen’s collaboration with the past serves as a reminder that we of the twenty-first century are neither the first nor the last to know heartbreak. Rather, we are simply one more snapshot in the collage of humanity—half-blurry proof that none of us are ever truly forgotten.” —LA Review “Behind the beautiful language Kitchen employs and the poignant moments she unearths, it’s the theme of life’s instability that resonates most.” —Brooklyn Rail “Half in Shade is well worth the read. Together with the photographs, it offers an entertaining, quirky, and sometimes profound trip down memory lane—even if the lane is not your own.” —TriQuarterly Review “Half in Shade: Family, Photography, and Fate, takes an intensive look at the intent behind 20th-century photography in general, with specific reflections on what any photo can tell us. . . . It can leave even the least nostalgic of readers wishing they had paid more attention.” —The Quivering Pen
