Families can be seen in many ways and a contemporary and broad definition of a Family is one where people choose who is in their Family and they choose what their Family structure looks like. In this context, what makes a ‘Family’ is that the members of this group share emotional bonds, common values, goals and responsibilities and choose to see themselves as a Family. From a social perspective this is an opportunity for APS Photo Walk Day participants to show the diversity of ‘Family’ in a modern, tolerant and inclusive Australia.
APS acknowledges that not everyone is comfortable or interested in photographing people so to be inclusive to our participants, a Family can also be depicted by the ‘family’ connection within a group of animals or birds.
What is most important is that your image portrays a sense of Family, that there is some connection between the subject in your photographs. Don’t be limited by a definition, be inspired by an emotion and feeling of what Family is in everyday life.
