Album #1. Nina Weiste's Family Album
I discovered Nina’s family album seventy-six years after her journey to Ellendale in a Denver, Colorado, antiques mall. I was seduced by her images, and purchased the album; I felt I was rescuing it from oblivion. Nina was not a skilled photographer, not experienced in basics such as composition and lighting, but she was an impassioned amateur captivated by the medium’s ability to freeze time. However, her reflection is in the faces of everyone she photographed.
