Matt Bergstrom is a graphic artist and photographer living in Chicago. He is the owner of Wurlington Press, a publisher of souvenir postcards, posters and photographs highlighting city history and architecture.
Postcards, like maps, flatten the multi-dimensional complexities of geography into symbols on a printed page. The viewer is encouraged to enter and wander this symbolic space as a parallel to exploring a real physical place. The souvenirs published by Wurlington Press encapsulate the experience of these particular places in miniaturized 3-dimensions, creating a form which we can hold in our hands.
