John Hinde’s postcard archive
- John Hinde
Have you ever dreamed of swimming in the river falls of Jamaica, or discovering the snake charmers of Singapore? And this while wearing flared trousers?
John Hinde makes us travel through time and space to the 60’s and 70’s, with his exotic and colorful postcards. He doesn’t hesitate to overdo the use of post-production color enhancement, and the landscapes and scenes become a little bit unreal and heavenly, with blue skies, flashy flowers and tanned skins.
That gives me a desire for remote places, and a dream of being in one of these postcards… But is reality like that? Do those postcards landscapes really exist?
