Every story is unique.

The inspirations for life stories are as varied as the people telling them. The most common way that people imagine such a project is as a chronological assessment of their lives. This approach, however, can be overwhelming to consider. Although many of the projects follow a general timeline of the subject’s life, there are many other ways to embark on the journey of documenting a life story.

 

Here are some themes that have guided other projects:  

  • Life Lessons

  • Travel

  • Witness to History

  • Recipes

  • Career

  • Collection of Letters

  • Artist's Body of Work

  • Ancestral Heritage

  • Family Folklore

  • Heirlooms

  • Family Traditions

  • Family Photos
