The Envelope Collector

By

26th Mar, 2013

I‘m just discovering I have a bit of a thing for vintage envelopes– I think it’s the way they get my mind wondering about what they once contained. Considering the contents of an envelope makes it into something far more intimate and personal and photographer Andrew Bush‘s fascinating collection does just that. The carefully considered portraits of his collection have a convincing effect of realism, making you want to know the story inside. Conveniently, you can take your own private viewing…

Although most of Andrew’s collection of envelopes appear to be personal correspondents, it appears junk mail wasn’t just a modern problem…

(Geschutzt is a mark sometimes found on antiques of German origin which translates to protected or copyrighted).
