Sas Colby: Stamp Collecting @Stellarhighway

Comments/Context: Decades before it became possible to have authentic United States postage printed with custom photography, Sas Colby was artistically experimenting with co-opting the postage stamp as a potential artistic medium. Back in the 1980s, Colby made her own “photo stamps”, by having her own photographs rephotographed, reduced in size, and cluster printed on paper; these twenty-five image sheets were then gummed and perforated by hand using an antiquated mechanical machine, giving them the look and feel of real postage.

Sas Colby: Stamp Collecting

A woman, shaded in a reddish hue, strides naked across a blank background toward a strip of yellow sun. This photograph, whose light casts the body of artist Sas Colby in a softened glow, so that her form resembles a classical statue, repeats in a small 5 by 5 grid.
