Mother’s Day And Actual Vintage Photos

Interesting stuff on Facebook today. Serious nostalgia for our moms when they were younger.

Does anyone else find it interesting that REAL vintage photos of moms are cropping up today? As opposed to faux-vintage of the Instagram variety. What do faux-vintage filters attempt to accomplish/convey?

Nathan Jurgenson says they manufacture nostalgia. They are attempts to reproduce “classic,” memorable moments. A yearning for something important.

What do you think?

    The words produce the moment and the nostalgia, the picture is just the evidence. If the words don’t make the case, the picture fools only the author.
