Blast from the Past: The Postcard Project

The summertime makes me think of how much fun we had creating the Postcard Project a couple years ago. For those who don’t know, inspired by the MET’s Walker Evans Exhibit (and notably, the MOMA is showing the artist’s work this summer!) we gave out 100 disposable cameras to kids from the ages of 3 to 12 and asked them to re-conceive postcards for Lower Manhattan, to include Tribeca, South Street Seaport, FI DI, Chinatown & Battery Park City. They had to take their time, budget their shots & frame their pictures. No instant gratification here – as we had to develop the film (an anomaly in this digital age!) We got an astounding array of shots and relied on an expert panel of professional photographers to come up with 10 winning photographs to comprise our Postcard Packet.
