…Camera Mail takes you inside the post office?

Camera Mail

Kyle Van Horn’s Camera Mail idea is an interesting one: He sends a disposable camera through the mail attached to a postcard and asks the postal workers to take pictures along the package’s journey.

    On November 30th, 2003, an oversized postcard holding one disposable camera and a roll of 800 ASA, 27-exposure film was mailed from Lafayette, IN to Santa Monica, CA. A few days later, the postman knocked on the door of my friend and found him answering in his underwear. He did not understand the statement: “The Post Master wants to know why you are mailing cameras.” as he had no prior knowledge of this delivery. Approximately 14 of the 27 shots arrived intact, all of which were taken at the Lafayette post office.
