Field Notes: Transfer Print on Vintage Envelopes by Rachel Phillips
Using a wet transfer process, the images are printed on transparency film then transferred to the wet surface of the envelope.
This series of photographs blends the domesticity of home with the joy of wilderness, the natural world. The paper houses are built from letters, postcards and envelopes saved through the decades in old shoe boxes by my grandparents and discovered in their attic a few years ago. The images are printed on old envelopes collected from around the world; artifacts from the last centuries. What did the envelopes contain? Where did they come from? In whose mailbox were they delivered? What stories do they tell?
