A great family project or tradition for any family to embrace is taking annual family photos.
In 1991, London based photographer, Zed Nelson began his pictorial project “The Family”. Nelson’s published project begins with pregnancy and infant shots, and continues with a photo taken of the family on the same day, with the same lighting and background every year to show their changes throughout each of their lives. Nelson has stated his intention for the project is to be ongoing for as long as the family is willing, and both he and they exist!
This series of photos covers the first 25 years.
A brand new life and a new family unit begins! This 1991 shot introduces two proud, but very possibly tired, new parents with their baby son.
