Lifetime snapshots

If only our eyes could take picturesIf only our pupils could take snapshots of the greatest things we see during life…
If only our suitcases could immortalize every great voyage we make…NOW they can!
A great, ingenious photographer has launched the trend, making a sort of photographic album of his journeys. From rural buildings, garden landscapes and night panoramas, to women shadows and lighting sketches, these suitcases seem to tell a story everywhere they go.
The idea is quite simple, and, as a modern adjustment, it conquered because it was easy to comprehend. The pictures catch the eye and trigger the question: what’s the story behind the image?
Though it seems pretty new, the concept actually was born decades ago. Even now, 68 years after World War II,  suitcases with such photos and stories are  discovered in the ruins
that once were houses and towns. Through the film grain of the internet connectivity, people all around the world can see and hear about stories worth living more than only in photos.

If you could immortalize a sequence of your life so far, and put it on the cover of a suitcase, what would that snapshot be like…and where would you send the suitcase?
