Awkward Family Photos by Mike Bender and Doug Chernack

I have them. You have them. We all have them: awkward family photos. They might have everyone wearing identical clothing. They might involve costumes. They could be taken on a holiday, a family reunion, or a child's recital. People could be looking away from the camera; everyone could be staring intently at the camera. There are any number of ways for a photo to turn awkward (even if it was trendy at the time, like my school pictures with a laser background). These photos have been collected on the Awkward Family Photos blog, which turned into this book. The book takes the best parts of the blog - the pictures, the commentary, and the readers' submissions explaining (but not always defending) the awkward backstory. It's a quick read, and definitely amusing.
