Photographer Enda Burke and the theatre of family lockdown | Photography

Enda Burke spent lockdown with his parents in Galway City on the west coast of Ireland. As a street photographer, with street life on hold, he decided to focus on the people closest to hand. The result is an award-winning series, Homebound With My Parents, which turns lockdown into theatre. His luminously exuberant colourscape – candyfloss pink, sunflower yellow and turquoise – offers “an antidote to the gloom of Covid”. It’s a bid for “vibrancy, humour, a form of escapism”. To pull this bright new world off, Burke turned the family home upside down and meticulously constructed each set himself.

According to Scherger, functional medicine “shifts the whole approach [to family medicine], recognizing that people’s chronic diseases, like hypertension and diabetes, are completely reversible, and the reason why is because they’re caused by what we eat and how we live.”

FamilySearch finds celebrity photographer Kimberly Butler’s family tree

Photojournalist and celebrity photographer Kimberly Butler had a good idea of what was coming in the “big reveal,” but she was about to be flabbergasted.

It was a Tuesday morning, June 29, and Butler was sitting at a table in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, with Craig Foster, a research specialist at FamilySearch.

‘I see people ageing – I don’t always see us’: one family, 30 years, 30 photographs | Family

In the summer of 1991, photographer Zed Nelson, then 25, invited a couple of new parents he was acquainted with to visit his London studio. Oh, and bring your baby, he said. At the time he had ambitions to be a travelling photojournalist. Within the year, he would fly out on the first of a series of visits to far-flung conflict zones.
