“SEND ME LETTERS” is a photographic record of the beauty found on the doors of houses still displaying letterboxes embossed with the word “CARTAS”, awakening in us reminiscences of a time gone by – when feelings were conveyed on paper. Of a time when each word had its own particular meaning and written letters were valuable simply by existing. Since they connected names, these letters were true instruments of communication, and of a unique and personalized nature.These days, people don’t write letters very often and letters with promises of eternal love are even rarer, yet letterboxes remain in their place, waiting for their purpose to be fulfilled.
