Inhaltsangabe: When, in 1902, the British Post Office first permitted writing on the reverse of postcards, rather than across the image, it heralded the beginning of the use of the picture postcard as a medium for commercial photography. Studios opened across the nation and, for the first time in history, it became possible for people from all walks of life to preserve their image for posterity, something that previously had only been available to the elite in the form of the painted portrait. Sitters could not only choose their pose, but also select from a variety of costumes, backdrops and props to create a fantasy setting and transform themselves into the figure of their imaginations. Postcard photographers also worked outside the studio, recording and celebrating friendships, families, colleagues, special occasions and events. "We are the People" brings together key images from Tom Phillips' vast collection of picture postcards from the first half of the 20th century. Categorised by theme, these images provide not only a fascinating glimpse into history but also an invaluable visual record of British society as a whole. Entertaining, intriguing, humorous, and at times haunting, "We are the People" presents a fresh and original approach to portraiture. It is indispensable to the social historian, those with an interest in photography and the general reader alike - and may just reveal some long-forgotten faces from the past.

Buchbeschreibung National Portrait Gallery, London, 2004. Ppbck, card covers. 1st edition. 336 pp.with 900 illustrations. The book is an exhibition catalogue and presents over 1000 postcards of ordinary people made exceptional by the lens of the camera. These images, all real photographs in postcard form, have been selected from the extensive collection of the artist, Tom Phillips, a postcard collector for a quarter of a century. In the first half of the 20th Century, the picture postcard transformed the art of portraiture from elite pastime to popular craze. Photographic equipment was cheaper, film faster, studios sprang up in every town, on every seaside promenade. In this democratic new medium, cook and chatelaine, poacher and gamekeeper, boss and labourer, manager and clerk were suddenly equal. Everyone became a postcard.
