Paul Paper's Postcards

Paul Paper's a cool dude. First of all, the guy's from Lithuania yet he still takes photos that make it seem like he got a press pass to heaven. Second, his website is called It Is My Party, the lack of contraction skyrocketing him from the status of merely good photographer to the foreign guy who happens to take awesome photos and who you're sure will steal your girlfriend because he's more romantic than you are. Anyway, Mr. Paper recently came out with a set of postcards entitled Tiny Photographs of Melancholy. All of the images used for the postcards have that ethereal lens flare vibe that makes his work so appealing. Don't send them out. These things look so good, you'd be crazy to fuck them up with stamps and bad handwriting.
