A photo album is an object that is strictly linked to 'family' pictures. An empty album is mute; it is distinguished because of its trade qualities; it may be perceived as a blank notebook waiting for a particular chronology or a collection. The album becomes a medium only when photographs become part of it.
Covers of albums are peculiar images that convey their meanings in totally different way than photographs inside, which are involved in an album's order. Legibility of family photos is frequently connected with identification of those who were photographed. Albums apart from photographs , convey other meanings and stories that fall aside any order and intention.
Photographing the covers of albums and fixing their image is my significant experience, because it's linked with my primal and instinctive need for co-existing with photography.
“Album” is a book that consists of about forty pictures.
