For more than a century the people of Birmingham, like people throughout the world, have documented their lives with snapshots. Snapshots preserve a moment, tell a story, and record life's milestones. Rather than focusing on issues that have divided the people of Birmingham, this exhibition crosses boundaries of race, gender, class, geography, and time to highlight the bonds shared by people in these photographs.
