Show and Tell
/a classroom exercise/ [noun]


Show and Tell is a story we are writing about our understanding of weddings and the people in them
—one photograph, one moment at a time.


Preface


Sit with a photograph long enough and you start to see different things. You start to notice that a photograph can contain a wealth of photographic facts: someone’s expression, body language, costume, environment, and the light that brings them all into focus. Sit with a photograph long enough and you start to remember why it was taken. You start to feel something new from things you might have always seen and felt, but seldomly expressed.


Reading a photograph is not a passive act. It requires you to examine the clues in the picture and realize that a photograph is not merely a documentation of facts but an expression of a moment. This is what we did. We sat and read and wrote about these photographs. In turn, we experienced not only the emotions expressed in the pictures, but how they relate to our own lives and remind us of things we care deeply about.
