Airmail from Venice
2000. 4x5" B/W analogue contact print. Edition of 20.
Airmail from Venice is a series of unexposed 4x5" film sent via airmail from Venice to Amsterdam. In September 2000 I was on holiday for a week in Venice. As a ritual, I sent a letter every day to my own address in Amsterdam, where I used to live at the time. The images are the results of the exposure of light onto the negatives during the shipping. Every letter took three to four days to reach their destination.
