Family photographs number among our most cherished possessions. These mementos preserve the past, acquainting us with long-gone forebears and providing ballast for the narratives on which we hang our identity. Photographing family uniquely illuminates its subjects’ essential selves, which, after all, are first fired in the forge of family life. Family Albums presents distinct takes on the genre—as captured by photographers Tom Bamberger, Lois Bielefeld, Dick Blau, Kevin Miyazaki and filmmaker Emir Cakaroz—documenting relationships, investigating origins and creating striking images along the way.

Exhibition Runs: August 18–November 11, 2018
Opening Party: Saturday, August 18, 2:00–5:00
Museum of Wisconsin Art
205 Veterans Ave, West Bend, WI 53095
