Description

From the publisher: "In Pictures from Home, California photographer Larry Sultan brings together family photographs -- including both memorabilia and his own pictures -- and the voices of his father and mother commenting on those photographs and their lives. Part family album, part visual novella, the book explores complicated, emotional issues about the nature of photography that are side-stepped by most photographic books."
