Seeking feedback on your experiences as collectors

Post by fissatt »


I posted a few months back about a photographic project I was doing for my final year project at university. I was interested in photographic postcards of Southampton and since then have collected around 60 examples. I became interested in the psychology of collecting and made a website mimicking those created by collectors who wish to share their collections and interest with a wider audience. The website is in addition to showing the postcards themselves at my end of year gallery show. On the site I have added a forum and created a topic about collector's experiences. I would greatly appreciate any input about your thoughts and feelings as a collector - what you collect, how you got in to it and what the objects mean to you.

Please feel free to explore the rest of the site

Many Thanks,

Hello again Francesca and many congratulations on your well executed postcard-related website - it will at best further enhance the medium in the world-wide domain. The world is definitely getting smaller with websites like yours focussing on local places of interest to make the visitor want to go there perhaps.

I wonder if you had any luck with the Southampton Postcard Club - if they were able to help - I hope so - their input would be an asset I'm sure.
