Divorce Photo Album

Italian photographer Gianni Fasolini heard that the divorce rate is going up and got a brilliant idea. People take wedding photos, so why not offer them a divorce photo album as well?

"People celebrate a marriage as a milestone in their lives, but a divorce is an important event too," he explained.

The 45-year-old added: "I have been doing photos of weddings and marriage ceremonies for years, day in and day out, and people told me they like having a photo marking important events in their lives.

"Then I got to thinking that maybe there would be some demand for people marking their divorces and so I started to offer photo sessions for freshly divorced couples - them smiling or shaking hands or in some cases even kissing.

Actually, sw, other photographers I know have tried breaking into the funeral photography market. It seems foreign to me, but I guess tehre are some people out there who want to remember the funeral.

the only problem is people fill albums with photos of *happy* occasions. you don't take snaps of grandma's funeral, or daddy's arrest. no one wants divorce pics.

Another idea: I think we should do away with the old custom of throwing a shower for someone who is getting married. The way it works these days, we should help two people have a yard sale when they move in together, and give them a shower when they divorce, because that's when they lose all their stuff!
