Back in the days, we would get all dressed up to go to the studio to take family photos with our family and loved ones. while patiently waiting for the photos to be developed. Once received we carefully place them into a photo album or frame them with exquisite photo frames to put at home. This familiar scene is considered as a beautiful memory by many people that were born in the 60s, 70s and even 80s.

Do you remember when was the last time you went to develop a photo? Do you still remember that leather-bound album full of family photos? If you are under the age of 30, chances are you have never experienced these type of things.

During this time, we will find that using the newest technology for photography is slowly weakening our memory of the old ways, to realised that paper photos are still the best way to retain our memory. With just a “click”, a photo captured a beautiful moment.

Because there is a touching story behind every photo, as the saying goes, the past can only be recalled, a series of unforgettable childhood photos are dedicated to our long lost childhood.
