one year ago, i began this blog as a way to provide myself with a space to slow down from the at-the-time frenetic immediacy of my digital work.
i began to consider my basics again, as well as pare down on the gadgetry of a certain modern version of machinery that did the thinking for you.
choosing the polaroid land camera has allowed me to incorporate what beautiful confusion comes with letting go of all the precision, and leaves that sense of wonderment and magic intact.
the process of learning this camera is still a surprise. where it has strengths and weaknesses. where those subtle shifts in use or repair influence the outcomes. still fun and evolves each day. it’s like a portable therapeutic instrument which flexes and is patient.
i’ve brought this camera (along with a few others) with me at least every day since purchasing it, and have not stopped shooting. i hope to continue its use through all the films i find which are compatible, and then after the entire stock of the universe is disappeared, i’ll probably turn it into a lamp or planter, so that another great beauty may grow from its skeleton.
many thanks to all followers and supporters. it has been and continues to be a great pleasure.
