for eachother

I often find myselt conflicted over whether certain pictures in my collection should be grouped with the ones of their same origin/narrative or if it's okay to regroup them according to my own ordering. The real dilemma is the question of ownership. Do these two photographs belong to one another or do they belong to me?

From my own perspective you would normally group them together if they came into your possession like that. To put in your own order or to separate would mean you would lose the provenance and original order. It is hard especially with personal collections as there might be no real order. You are right who would these people belong to? Maybe they stand alone, under your care but not yours.
