Part of summary taken from container
Set in Kolkata, Family Album attempts to gain some insights into our notions of family as mediated through personal photographs in private collections. Encounters with members of a large joint family, a nuclear family, an elderly woman now living alone and a single man with an extensive family archive help to explore the ways in which we construct meanings in photos: through direct and indirect memory; through different ways of looking; through the conventions of portraiture itself. And we see how family photos may be read as cultural and historical narratives.
