Snail Mail February 1–May 20, 2012

Snail Mail, a focused installation of photo correspondence from the MFAH collection, features objects that were, until recently, a common phenomenon in the photographic community. Before widespread use of e-mail, photographers would write letters on the backs of misprints or even fine-art quality objects. The MFAH photography collection contains more than 1,500 such objects that have been mailed to museum staff throughout the years as correspondence from photographers around the world.

This exhibition is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
