American Postcards documents the experiences and impressions of three European photographers in post 9/11 USA (2004 to 2005). It features photography and writing, in picture-postcard format, by London College of Communication (BA Photography) graduates Norman Wilcox (UK), Amanda Johansson (Sweden) and Ronan Haughton (Ireland). It also features the work of Art Kaligos (USA), a photography graduate of Parsons School of Design New York.
American Postcards also features exclusive writing by Peter D. Osborne, author of 'Travelling Light, travel and visual culture'.
"Then the police stop us. They’re friendly, they pose for Polaroids .... Art confesses that he would have preferred to have been handcuffed .... so his European pals could have had an Easy Rider experience." - Peter D. Osborne
