The exponential growth of digital photo collections, combined with the legacy of printed photographs, is leading families to experience difficulties in remembering and finding photographs. Paradoxically this creates new opportunities for the re-discovery of forgotten images. This paper reports a new study in this area, based on interviews and creative activities with ten families in the south east of England. The study found that many triggers for photo re-use were either speculative or accidental, and led people to reinterpret the meaning of photographs in the light of subsequent experience and social discussion. This suggests a need to support serendipitous browsing of photographs and a more fluid and provisional approach to the semantic tagging of personal media.
