Alaric is a mishchievous little boy. Try and talk to him, and his smile will instantly put you under his spell. A photo captures a moment in life. That moment starts following us from childhood and is transmitted down the line to the following generations. Be it analogue (as here) or digital, the photo captures the identity in that point in time. The joy of seeing a son or daughter’s picture then morphs into that of showing our offspring our own baby pictures. Who has never heard a delighted: “Are you this baby, there, Dad?”
