Our first collection is called Peace. We wanted to pick a subject that resonates with all of us in many ways. We've curated existing works and new works, Postcards from Ferguson is a mix of the two.
Jon Lowenstein is a photographer that has been taking photographs to document the extreme racial inequality in Ferguson, Missouri, USA. His work depicts the frustration and anger of the community. A community not only unprotected by the police force but actively under attack.
These postcards are a call to action - a request for everyone to take a minute to think about racial issues, to write something down, and to send it to someone that matters.
Here, a memory from long ago reminds the writer that despite on-going and frequent protests over the years, we are still in the same place.
Something needs to change.
