‘Family Pictures Syracuse’ Brings City’s Marginalized Histories Into Focus with Thomas Allen Harris

If a picture paints a thousand words, what new Syracuse community portrait will emerge to illustrate the past and present stories of individuals and families who have long been neglected in the public memory?

Organizers of the community photographic project, “Family Pictures Syracuse,” want to visualize just that and are asking Syracuse families to share their family photos and stories on camera to create a living photo archive. Community members—particularly those whose histories have been marginalized—are invited to talk about their family histories at a recorded interview station, digitize their family photos for later exhibition and have new portraits taken with their family photographs.
