POSTCARDS
FROM BALTIMORE 
This homage to the wonderfully bent and gloriously filthy work of filmaker John Waters is born from a three decade long love affair with his untamable imagination.

In 2012 I had the pleasure of interviewing John Waters for a project. He talked in depth about his love of hitch hiking and random travel setinations.

This oversized postcard series is inspired by that interview and by the regular film setting of his home town Baltimore.
