Seriously enjoyed this Guardain article: The power of photography: time, mortality and memory. Grayson Perry writes: When I was about five, my mother made a bonfire in the back garden and burned a suitcase full of family photos taken by my father. He had been a keen photographer with his own dark room. I don’t know why she burned them, but it coincided with them getting divorced and my stepfather moving in.

I'd love a "clunky Russian SLR" - alas, they're more expensive now than they were new...

I missed this one. A lot here about the function and worth of photos.
