TV Album features snapshots of people posing with television sets in the 1950s through the 1990s. Snapshots offer clues to how people integrated the TV into domestic decor and how they used the TV set as a setting for family poses. Rather than watch TV, people often posed in front of it. Women struck glamor poses in front of the set. People posed in drag or even entirely nude. Children danced and played instruments in front of the screen. People even climbed inside the set to make TV trick shots. To learn more, see my book, TV Snapshots: An Archive of Everyday Life, Duke University Press, 2022.
