John Hinde was a photographer that, even after his death, is well known for his postcards. He travelled the world and took beautiful shots of the lives of ordinary people, using the new technology (in those days) of color photography.

Here, John Hinde takes priceless snapshots of creative artisans in Nigeria. I absolutely love the way he shows these Nigerians hard at work developing their crafts, be it mat weaving, pottery, hair styling, leather works, or sculpture. I personnally love these images and can easily imagine these postcard sized photos in print on my walls.
