Holy Land Slides

Whilst thinking about the metaphorical journey taken by my grandmother as part of her arts of memory approach in The Holy Land, I keeping looking at both he image and the physical object of the slide. Interestingly these slides are undated and are labeled ‘Original on Kodak’. I find this even more interesting as it seems these aren’t original and are in fact tourist memorabilia. This also links quite nicely to the fact my grandmother spent many a year there as a tourist. One other point I would like to raise is the link these physical slides have tot hat of the family album photographs taken whilst on holiday. Although these are in some ways eluding to be that of the amateur holiday snap but are actually professional reproductions.
