Awkward xmas photos

When you were a kid, everything about Christmas was monumentally awesome. Presents, chocolates, snow, time out of school: all unfathomably exciting. But every now and then your cruel relatives would insist on bringing out a dreaded camera and, quite simply, ruin everything by taking plenty of awkward photos.

Pre-digital camera, pre-internet, pre-tagging; you'd have been safe in assuming they'd stay hidden in a musty basement next to a box of VHS tapes. Not so simple. The Awkward Family Photos book serves as a constant reminder that the past can be made present quite easily and no one is safe (especially if you happened to go through a pudgy phase and/or suffered from haircut hackery).

Awkward Family Photos by Mike Bender and Doug Chernack is published by Hodder and Stoughton in hardback, priced £12.99. Awkwardfamilyphotos.com
