Ever looked at daisy and saw the letter O, ever been walking past a tree and thought, that branch looks like a letter K, ever gone to open a door and thought, that door handle looks like a letter L. No? Me neither but that’s what makes great photographers special they see thing we simply don’t see; and occasionally they find something brand new and an art form is born.
That is what has happened with letter photos. Photographers began to build up catalogues of photographs depicting individual letters of the alphabet, found in everyday life. These catalogues of photos now contain the complete alphabet and there are many different photos depicting the same letter. Each photographer has his own style and personality and that is portrayed in the photographs.
Because there is now a full alphabet any word can be created from the individual letter photos and that’s how letter photo art was conceived. It is now possible to have pieces of wall art designed with these photographs that display a word and design chosen by the customer. This gives them a piece of unique and interesting art without having to buy an original Picasso.
