Notes on the reading: The first 2 pages are a general essay from the exhibition catalog. The next part, “Advertising” is a topic essay in the same book that delves further into the combination of photographs and other forms of representation. Interesting to note in this article: the interplay of text, time, and image in an object that is both intended for commerce (advertising) but also for intimate relationships (personal correspondence). There are copious contrasts in these little cards that I find fascinating: modern/tradition, mechanical/hand, engineered environment/nature, etc. I have the book in my locker if you’re interested in the color reproductions of the beautiful cards.
