From the archives, these photos were made back in 2007 during the Reading trip to Rome. The concept is along similar lines to my ‘left out letters’ series as an excuse to make, shoot, and share letters in a foreign city. The complete alphabet it made up of miscellaneous letters that I was looking at during the course of my MA studies, they are examples of individual characters I found interesting and beautiful at the time. All images were taken around Rome everywhere from obscure alleys to the biggest tourist spots. The forum, Pantheon, Trajan’s column, Vatican City – all the big spots can be seen here.
The letters are made of paper, hand cut and folded. They were approximately 3×5 inches.
