Bez Davies is correct. I just wanted to note that "going through" implies a fairly large number of items. You would never say I am "going through" one photo. Also, it usually implies looking at each one. PS: You also can say "I was going through the trash, looking for my lost ring," or "I am going through my list of things to do today, and deciding which do do first" (which is an example of what Bez Davies said about sorting items)

Looking at. When you go through something (photos, papers, books) you are looking at them and possibly sorting them.
