Early in 2017, [David] Peterman began his journey. He started by venturing to the four corners of the city: His first photo, at 140th and Lake City Way, features the most northeastern mailbox in town. After he scratched those off his list, he proceeded at random. After all, there are mailboxes everywhere: in suburbs and urban centers; outside bustling restaurants and in abandoned lots.

Peterman, who has lived in Seattle for over 30 years, was surprised at what he learned about his city. “I found neighborhoods I had never heard of,” he says. He cites one small neighborhood next to a major freeway, which he has driven by hundreds of times. “I looked on the map, and there was a mailbox,” he says. Along with it were several blocks of homes: “People’s lives are back here, and I had no idea.”

Why mailboxes? Why not? They may go the way of the phone book soon, but a  man took selfies with all the mailboxes in Seattle and it changed his perspective of the city he thought he knew.
