Work: 2 Correspondence

CORRESPONDENCE


Working from postally used postcards, this ongoing activity involves collecting, cataloguing, archiving & research in order to trace the spot where the original picture was taken and rephotograph the view as it is today. The written message from the original card, provides the title for each piece and a personal narrative to each place.


The project records and highlights social, cultural and physical changes to the landscape from several subjective viewpoints; that of the artist, the original photographer and the author of the postcard message.



Correspondence exhibited at The Photographers' Gallery, FreshFacedandWildEyed 2008
