Catalogue Note

‘I wanted to draw attention to the expectations that develop from our preconceptions surrounding the shape in which a message is delivered. The envelopes are framed in contact printing frames, a photographic tool for producing the latent image on a piece of paper.  The device or frame itself is an object with spring clasps that allow it to be opened and closed. I wanted the subject of the photograph, the envelope, to extend it’s meaning into the object, the frame that held it, thereby making the photo into an object’ (interview with the photographer, ‘Andrew Bush: Eye on the Road,’ Musée Magazine, 2015, No. 11, p. 57).
