Friday Night Dinners - The Book

Friday Night Dinners
The Book

Nancy Edelstein is a fine art photographer and book maker whose work explores memory and the objects that preserve it. Friday Night Dinners brings together visual and story telling components to reveal the power of forgotten memories held in her grandmother’s porcelain dishes. This project is the culmination of her unique photographic process, resulting in fine art digital prints and a handmade artist book, honoring those layered images with personal stories of a lost family tradition.


 Friday Night Dinners is an accordion book housed in a custom clamshell box. Contained within are printed translucent vellum pages, enhancing and obscuring the images beneath. As each vellum page is turned, new views of the same spread is revealed. These variations are reflected in the slide show of the book presented here.
