Standin’ on your mama’s porch

A few weeks ago I came across Dear Photograph, a really touching photo project where people return to the exact place an old picture was taken then take another, capturing the past and present scene in one new image. Looking through, I was struck by how the outside of a house can be somewhere that so many memories are made and how the houses we grow up in stay with us all through our lives.

You’ll find the full Dear Photograph archive here – some joyful, some tinged with sadness and the occasional picture that stops you in your tracks.

What do you remember most about the houses you grew up in?
