I've always thought photos app icons shouldn't display photos. I think it's a lack of inspiration, it's better to display the whole idea of what photos are for each of us.
I discovered few old photo albums at home and they were made of a leather texture and golden lines. Their classic style made me think of how the Photos app icon is incoherent and design a new one inspired by these photo albums. So here it is.
I made few iterations of the design and I wanted it to be the simplest possible but I found that I wasn't sure enough about the design without the photo templates on it. You can check the attachment to see how it looks without the photos.
You can go to the following link with your iPhone to preview the icon on your device: http://previ.co/13.
