Two new technological inventions, photography and the first postage stamp (the Penny Black), occurred within one year, 1839-40. Inexpensive, printed paper postage quickly caught on, as did sending messages with personal photos, tourist scenes, and illustrated images on penny postcards. Today, paper communication is fading while the mind-numbing glut of photographic images saturates. Photography, a passion for adventure, cultural documentation, and philatelic art continue to inform Ward Selbie’s artistic expression.
