The results were an extraordinary act of heartfelt creativity and generosity. Each card includes a picture of their mother and a written story that depicts the essence of their relationship.
Although it seemed difficult to let these beautiful expressions of love go, the group donated all their postcards to the women of Malawi. Their donation was made in honor of their deep connection to each other and to all mothers and daughters across the globe.
Please visit www.carolinelovellphotography.com to see all the beautiful postcards.
Traveling Postcards is an opportunity for women to share their lives and make connections across the world.
Come have your picture taken with a woman you love and share your story through writing, poetry, photography and art.
I will be traveling to Africa in 2009 to document the lives of women and children in Malawi. I will bring all the postcards that are made in donation to Voice Flame Writers/Malawi, to Africa and share the wonderful stories we all carry within us.
I will continue the project in Malawi and hope to exhibit all the cards I have collected together, in one place, merging and connecting woman.
Anyone can participate in Traveling Postcards! Please send me your address and I will send you instructions and ideas for you to create your own card.
I will be posting all the postcards I receive on my website. Be sure to look for yours!
