Small Victories / Update

I never thought I’d see the day I’d get more snail mail than email!

small victories envelopes mail art photography

Do you see your envelope? You might have to take a peek over here, here, here, here, or here.

    I should clarify that the photos are not of one pile getting bigger, they are all completely different piles of envelopes.

    Looks like a heap’er.

    Good luck with the trip, and show. I didn’t get a chance to take any photos this time around, hopefully there are more small victory contests/ shows/ goodness of similar content sooner than later. But if it’s later, that’s alright too. It’ll mean better camera gear, and getting a better game down in photography.

    Have a good one.

More images below. Also, video of Nelson talking about the chemistry processes behind her work!
