Photos That Are 'Too Hard to Keep' by Jason Lazarus

"Since 2010, Chicago-based artist Jason Lazarus has maintained a growing archive of images deemed 'too hard to keep' by their owners. Submissions have included photos of friends, family members, pets, high school graduations, objects, and places that are too difficult to view again. Lazarus returns these shadow images to the light in the form of books and exhibitions culled from his archive, but their dark pathos remains attached."
