Postcards Home (10 Photos)

© Henry Jacobson

Documentary and fine art photographer Henry Jacobson is completing his first book, called Postcards Home, which is a collection of iPhone images he sent to his loved ones or posted on social networks while he was living a nomadic existence for almost three years. Jacobson says the images reveal the palatable essence of a period of “personal upheaval, of endings and beginnings of very important relationships, of illnesses and deaths and births.” He views the work not as a set of photographs, but rather as a series of direct communications that speak to the idea of exploring the changing landscape of photography in the mobile, socially-networked age. Daylight Books will publish Postcards Home next fall.
