Inspired by the tradition of hand written love letters, I decided to honor this forgotten practice and emulate it into my work. I selected letters written by historical figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Beethoven, Elizabeth Barrett, and Abigail Adams. I chose to have my model shot from behind and nude to match the vulnerability of the letters to an actual person. I hand sewed each letter on to each photo making it a physical object.
