'Album Beauty' is an ode to the vanishing era of family photo albums. Once commonplace in every home, photo albums have been replaced in the digital era by online and hard drives storage. The visual intimate narratives collected by Kessels bear testimony to the once-universal appeal for documenting and displaying ones life. As depositaries of family stories, photo albums, with their careful selection and layouts, most often represented a fabricated, «reshaped» family. In the end, these stories of birth, death, beauty, sexuality, happiness, youth, complicity and friendship hold a little bit of each of us within them.
