Family Pictures

Black and white
the pattern of dark and light
a magic lantern show

Images made of shadows
shapes defined by absence
obstructions interposed

Simple photographs
complex stories
our eyes meet

Viewer and viewed
holder and held
questions unanswered

History and mystery
story and puzzle
written by Kodak
