What is this? Well, it might be art. I'm not really sure.
It was mostly just for fun. It's been very inspirational
to actually have a goal, to give me the motivation to use
a camera again. Most of the photos are new. Postcards
2, 4, 6, 7 and 8 were taken since February 2005.

I sent identical sets of these postcards to seven different
people. And I quit at eight postcards because it was a
round number. (And because we're on our LAST box
of the discontinued Ilford postcard photo paper!)

I like the intimacy of these tiny little handmade objects.
I really enjoyed the ritual of writing and addressing
and mailing them, too. It was about the difference
between sending an email, and sending a real object
transported across a distance, by human hands.

And it was about making them all by hand, without
computers or digital methods - dust, scratches and all.

I'm pretty happy with them. Maybe it would be nice if they were a little more connected, or told a story somehow, but I was just making it up as I went along.

What's next? I think my next project is going to have something to do with other people's abandoned shopping lists. (I keep finding them in the carts and by the front doors of grocery stores.) Or maybe not.
