Color photographs. Minor wear to boards. Rachel Boillot is a photographer, filmmaker, and educator based in Nashville. Boillot earned both a BA and a BFA from Tufts University (Medford, MA) as well as an MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts from Duke University (Durham, NC). In 2011, she read a New York Times article about the plight of today’s USPS. Thousands of post offices are closing, mostly in rural communities. It was like a call to attention to a child’s bedroom corner. It’s always been there in view, taken for granted. She ultimately found her project’s foothold in the notion of disappearing ZIP codes. Rural communities were losing their post offices first, though they rely on them the most. With the loss of a ZIP code, the town loses its original presence on the American map. She began to realize that ZIP codes were almost symbols for place identity, the numerical identity of place.
