The stories in this gallery were submitted via the Web in 2002 using our create essay tools. There is an exceptional range of submission--four countries, all ages, and a range of emotions and takes on the family snapshot. Four authors have used their own images; the others have chosen photographs from our archive.

We welcome your feedback at cvisions@cat.nyu.edu and your submissions of photos and stories.
