I love my family and have always wanted to display photos of my parents, cousins, grandparents, in-laws—especially those treasured moments from back in the day when we used FILM. But I’ve never found a way to display family photos that feels right. While some have mastered the look, I’m not one for a cornucopia of picture frames on the bookshelf—my arrangement usually evokes a hoarder grandma feel.
So I was excited when my friend Janette Crawford told me about a new project she’s working on called Parabo Press. It’s a brand new service from the folks at Photojojo and Zoomin that offers creative ways to display photos. My favorite is the risograph print (above), which uses a Japanese machine invented in the ’80s to apply a color—pink, blue, turquoise or a peachy-orange—to your photos and blow them up into a 12″ by 17″ inch art piece on sturdy art-quality paper. I was so excited to get these made of our teenager and 3-year-old!
