A Family Portrait Project You Can Start Today

Diego's Family PortraitsIf we could turn back time, we’d find a way to make our parents follow the annual ritual that Diego Golberg has been practicing since June 17th, 1976.

His aim is simple: to take a single portrait of every family member, every year. The results are jarringly beautiful and thought-provoking.

25 years collapse in an instant.

You can breeze through this in a second, if you want. But do yourself a favor and spend a few minutes really looking at these faces.

We think it’s never too late to start this photo ritual.

(BTW: Our friend Ely notes, and we agree, that Nicolas has clearly become a player by 1998.)
