kinfolk: morsels we keep after the meal

November 29, 2012
If you frequent the internet–and your presence here means you do–you’ve no doubt stumbled across the beautiful Kinfolk Magazine. Its covers make for irresistible photo ops and with the release of each new addition, I promise you, my Instragram photostream becomes one long queue of photos featuring the magazine paired with cups of tea and stockinged feet. It’s the kind of magazine you want to dive into, and the urge to document the enjoyment of it is too tempting to avoid. The fact that the magazine has become so ubiquitous is a testament to its charm and I am so pleased to share news that I have a story in the latest volume. In the special holiday edition, I share a piece about the importance of listening to family stories. My essay is paired with Lisa Waringer‘s beautiful photograph of Grace, grandmother to Chelsea Fuss
Here, a few photographs of my own family who I write about in the essay. I’ll be sharing family snapshots today on Instagram, if you’d like to follow along.kinfolk6530
Grace in Brooklyn, 1915. Age 17.
Ruth (center) at medical school in Dallas, Texas, 1925. Aged 24.
