I MAKE POSTCARDS - SOLO EXHIBITION BY SCOTT BOURNE IN LYON 06.05. - 19.06.2010!
- Date published
All the photos in this show are meant to meet with a common theme of darkness as expressed in the pages of ECLIPSE. They are all hand printed photographs on traditional Barite paper, which is gelatin based and the most durable of all photographic papers. In the 21st century PAPER is still the longest lasting way to store data and yet everything in your world is going out of print and you are helping it. They’ve got you addicted to the instant gratification of the Internet. Strung out on I-pods and myspace pages. Soon the post will be out of business but long after your computers collapse and erase all your photographs, my postcards still will exist. I encourage you to stop erasing yourselves. To go out, buy a small, inexpensive film camera, create some postcards of your own and begin a history that will surpass modern technology.
