Postcards from Nowhere, Vik Muniz $383.88 USD

Carefully edited in two volumes and presented in a limited edition of 500 copies, the publication Postcards from Nowhere by artist Vik Muniz celebrates this almost obsolete artifact, the postcard. This series invites the readers to explore their own understanding of classic landscapes, such as the Great Wall of China, the Eiffel Tower, and the Taj Mahal, through meticulously crafted collages from postcards from the artist's collection.
 
The technique used by Vik Muniz to photograph the collages adds volume to the works with a light projection that makes noticeable the overlapping of small parts. In the movement of looking closely and from afar to capture both the whole image and its pieces, the observer resorts not only to what they see but also to the pictures of the famous landscapes they have seen before.
