For "what I’d hoped to say before falling out of love" Mooney spent four weeks at the Baltic Sea. With him he took a 9X12 cm plate camera from ca. 1920 and a rudimentary dark room to develop and make prints on the road. The prints he made were sent as postcards, blank except for address and the date, to Michael Haeflinger in Berlin to be written. The use of archaic printing techniques and a candid self commentary examines the aesthetic of memory and the nostalgia of the now.
