One category that I look for are those that I call "vicarious views." These are ones that include a human observer of the view in the foreground and enable me to view the scene vicariously. The postcards in this post all have the observer on the edge of something, so I am calling them Postcards from the Edge.
The videos below have nothing, other than the title, in common with my Postcards from the Edge or the famous Postcards from the Edge book and movie. The videos document the 16th annual Postcards from the Edge exhibition, a benefit for the Visual AIDS organization, whose mission is utilizing art "to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over." The exhibition consists of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists. The art is sold to benefit the organization's mission.
Watch the videos and get a vicarious view of the exhibition.
