Of all of the places to see architectural photography end up, a USPS stamp has to be one of the most unexpected – and coolest!
The United States Postal Service has announced that in their fresh 2023 stamp lineup, they’ll have four new Presorted First-Class Mail stamps available for purchase by bulk mail users in coils of 3,000 and 10,000. One of the selected bridge photographs is Miller + Miller’s image of the I-74 Iowa-Illinois Memorial bridge – a past APA Project of the Week.
Ryan and Sarah Miller shared on their site:
MILLER+MILLER is thrilled to be awarded this feature! The postal service’s photograph for the stamp design is a night image and creative shot drone aerial photo of the twin arch bridges. As Chicago based photographers who travel to photograph Nationwide structural art, infrastructure, architecture, buildings, industrial, bridges, transportation and more, we were excited when [Miguel Rosales of Rosales + Partners] selected us as the photographer for this photo project close to home. Fun M+M factoid: Ryan used to collect stamps & coins as a young dork.
A huge congratulations to Ryan and Sarah at Miller + Miller for this exciting feature! You can learn more about it here.
