Open at Noon is a project by Mexico-City based photographer Mark Alor Powell. Presented without introduction or any sort of statement, the series is full of images that feel familiar, but are tinged with a sense of something beyond this world. Vaguely odd, but beautifully shot, portraits punctuate the work and, along with humorous and eerie landscapes, have the viewer questioning what exactly they are looking at.

London artist Mark Powell cleverly re-purposes old, used, and often tattered ephemera. Using cancelled envelopes, maps, and other found items as his canvases, he produces striking, life-like, and inked drawings. His sketches are made using only a Bic Biro pen, often incorporating the original stamps, logos, and addresses.

We have shown some of Mark Powell's work on the site before, but we just caught a new batch of Powell's envelope portraits, using a Bic Biro pen on vintage, yellow aged envelopes. The envelopes all come from older European mail networks.
