The gift worth a thousand words
The greatest gift that you can possibly give somebody else is a memory, something for them to cherish forever and reminisce about fondly. Photographs are the optimum way to capture those special times. Regardless of whether it is for a family special occasion, a birthday party with friends, a wedding day or even something as simple as a celebration of loved ones, everyone wants to be able to remember that moment.
A photograph is more than just a visual capture; a photograph is a reminder of joy, a freeze frame of the happiness shared. The exponential growth and popularity of Instagram – a platform dominated by visuals and eye-catching content – demonstrates everyone’s affinity with images. More importantly, the success of the platform highlights a love of sharing these images with friends and family.
Whilst digital photos are easily accessible, convenient and easy to store, there is something nostalgic and special about a printed photograph. In a world where the internet has revolutionised photography almost completely, treasure the printed photograph by filling photo books with them.
Why are printed photos more special?
Photo books can be an ideal thoughtful, meaningful gift for somebody else. Collecting photos into one album is a fantastic way to celebrate something: a holiday, a wedding, a birthday, a graduation or any other number of special occasions.
With current circumstances in mind too, photo books offer the chance to reflect on happier times with loved ones until everyone can make more memories together again. Before the photography industry was revolutionised by technology, creating the image landscape familiar to everyone today, a photo book would have a rustic but personal gift.
Just as vinyl records have maintained their popularity, largely due to nostalgic attachment, a printed photo is something special nowadays, compared to a digital version. The resurgence of polaroid cameras and sustained consumer interest in personalised photo books, calendars and prints throughout the digital revolution demonstrates an affinity with printed images, something that digital photography has not been able to capture.
