Postcards From America
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about the new Magnum project, Postcards From America. This May, I’m going to be joining four other photographers (Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Chris Anderson, Mikhael Subotzky) and the writer Ginger Strand for a two week road trip from San Antonio to Oakland.
This is a unique project for Magnum. We are working collaboratively and are hoping to engage much more directly with our audience. At the beginning of the trip we will be doing a public event at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin. And at the end we’re going to do a pop-up exhibition somewhere in Oakland.
We also hope to connect with people during the run of the trip in a variety of ways:
- On our project website you can sign up to receive postcards from the photographers or a limited edition book/prints from the trip.
- You can follow our progress on our Tumblr blog (and also on Facebook and Twitter).
- Through our Flickr page, you can contribute your own images of America.
