Among other things, Frankfurter photographs weddings, for hire. Weddings are a remarkable spectacle. Not only do they provide the ceremonial occasion to meld families, they mediate social categories through a public display of private emotions. The wedding photographer goes where most strangers are not allowed.  Weddings can bring out the worst in people: they can highlight family feuds and tantrums and bad fashion choices. They also are a display of wealth and ritual gift exchange. As the audience at these events, we are on one side of the looking glass, the side of appearances. But an artist who is The Photographer gets to go through the glass, and sometimes she can find decisive moments, telling moments—like treasures—to bring back from the other side. These treasures tell universal stories from the most personal of events
