Cynthia, Montclair, New Jersey, 2002 (© 2007 by Andrea Stern)

As a teenager, Andrea Stern hated being the subject of her shutterbug father’s photographs. As an adult, she turned the tables, picking up a camera of her own and taking pictures of her large, affluent family not just in moments of celebration—horas at weddings, bar mitzvah mornings, and holiday gatherings—but at meals, in quiet prayer, and at the beach.

Many of these images are now collected in a new book titled Inheritance, which reads almost like a diary, capturing the intimate moments and love exchanged among Stern’s close-knit relatives. Andrea Stern speaks with Nextbook about her inheritances, from the material privileges she enjoyed to the emotional legacy her family—and every family—bestows on its children.
