Publisher's Description

Divinations is a series in which Rachel Phillips transfer-prints new imagery onto original 19th century mounted portraits called “cabinet cards.” The theme of each card is a method of divination or fortune telling, a by turns playful and poignant attempt at using the proverbial crystal ball to see into the lost past, rather than the unknown future. Divinations celebrates both the history of early photography and the shared humanity a simple portrait can convey. The catalog Divinations presents life-size reproductions of both the front and back of sixteen altered cabinet cards, in a hand bound booklet.

Edition of 75.
