Album Beauty by Erik Kessels, Théâtre Antique

An ode to the vanishing era of the photo album by Erik Kessels, a collector of vernacular photography who has spent many a Saturday at outdoor markets and junk stores collecting these amateur narratives, often drawn to their imperfections. According to Kessels, ‘a long and dedicated search through photo albums will occasionally reveal something less than perfection or the desire to appear normal. And in these cracks, beauty may be found.
