There’s something really cool about instant images you can touch instead of just see on a screen.
Especially when they’re a little imperfect , beautiful little things.
An instant art exhibition!
Out in the sun, to dry. (This is old-school peel-apart Polaroid film.)
He has been doing this for a while now, everywhere, not just volcanic beaches and museums of ancient things.) Using expired film and cameras that I can only imagine were once called ‘portable’ because portable used to mean ‘can be lifted, even if heavy and inconvenient.’
So I got jealous. And got an old Polaroid SX-70 and some Impossible film. (Which, you have to develop in the dark still, and it’s not exactly the same, but like I told him, I am investing in the future…of the past. The Polaroid is dead, long live the Polaroid!)
