Photographs is a short story about ‘A short piece exploring the life of a person through the mundane magic of photographs.’ As told by the author. I was deeply interested in how visual the story could be without actual photographs, and it was quite good. The short piece captured my imagination, & I was able to easily picture what life the photographs held. Merel’s writing style in this short is quite reminiscent of Margret Atwoods brilliant The Blind Assassin, which I loved. Personally, I would love to see Merel write a novel based on the life of these wonderful ‘Photographs’.

Describing photographs in great detail. I did not think it could be done without visual, but OMG it can if you have a imagination.
Remarkable short story (book). You have to read it to the end to get the full impact, A very easy rating of 5 stars from me.
Thank you for the free short story (book)

What starts off as a sweet story of nostalgia quickly becomes a sad reality as told through a simple walk down a hallway lined with family pictures. It's a short vignette that doesn't require an excessive word count to grab your heart, make it burst from happiness and then turn around and tear it out in an emotional mess.
