Real Photo Postcard Survey Project. Our UV exposure unit broke down right after our film processor--thus reminding us of the extensive labor involved and how we depend on all of our art-making machines to work. Editing the prints has been ongoing for months with each portrait set out in a grid on top the flat files in the entryway of our studio as it is completed. Vintage postcard portraits keep turning up and are also set out. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel covered the project while in process and that turned up a few commissions from people unknown to us thus expanding the scope. Liz Koerner from Wisconsin Public Television's "In Wisconsin" program also spent a day gathering material on the project for a segment to air in fall. We invited our Manitowoc neighbors Ryan and Richie to come by for a portrait that day.

The show opens on Gallery Night, Friday, July 23, 2010 at the Portrait Society Gallery in Milwaukee.
