Post Script follows the vanishing trace of the United States Postal Service. Thousands of rural post offices are closing, leaving communities increasingly isolated. The images in Post Script depict these bereft communities, many of which are effaced from the American map with the resulting loss of their ZIP code. Using the post office as metaphor, the work ultimately probes how we define locality. The photographs in Post Script act as a last letter from the now vacant office.
This work continues my ongoing exploration of the American landscape. Fusing fact and fiction, I search for the narratives that root us in place. I am simply fascinated by how and where we live. With the photograph as vehicle, I am able to locate such broad inquiry within the particular.
