Abstract:

At the unique intersection between photography, graphic design and text, the physical aspects of photography and typography are investigated for their capacity to embody ethereal thought. Through multi-faceted research methods engaged over the course of a summer in Berlin and a winter in Toronto, the investigation employs a collection of early 20th century postcards belonging to the author’s great-grandmother and namesake—Sophie Rosenbaum. As much of the theoretical discussion on photography can be limited to vision, touch is introduced as a vital element in photography using the writings of Erin Manning. The result of this exploration of vision and touch is a printed object consisting of original texts and photographs.
