Some people carry photographs of the people they love. The photographs are sometimes folded, torn, or stained. But thfey seem more significant than ordinary, clean photographs. How long does it take to make such a beautiful wallet photograph?

There was a big tree in the back garden of Matthew’s house. I photographed the tree several times. The tree was strangely attractive to me, and I wanted to carry the photograph of the tree in my wallet, which I did for one month. A month later, the photograph became to possess a look that was a bit historical.

But the folds and seams can be flattened and the photograph may become an ordinary photograph again.
