James & Zoita

wood, mica, PO box cover, correspondence

5 ¼ x 3 ½ x 2 ½

© 2012


When rummaging through a box of old documents I had bought online, I came across a bundle of letters between two young people, James and Zoita. Further research showed James to be of Greek origin, and 25 years old when first writing these letters, and Zoita of Romanian origins and 16 years old. Their correspondence tells of their upcoming marriage, and has been reproduced exactly as was written by James and Zoita. The portrait photographs are a liberty of the artist.
