Imagine a loved one is missing and you must provide the authorities and press with an image of him or her. Quickly locate a recent photograph of this person that would serve as an adequate representation for distribution.
These are the instructions that volunteers were asked to follow. The photographs each person selected depict a likeness of a person as perceived by their loved one. Most volunteers for this project knew exactly which photograph they would contribute. Whether posed or candid, the images are typical of the photographs we keep as memories of events in our lives.
