17 years. That’s about how long it has been since I pulled apart a polaroid image.
I think the last time was in 1995 just after leaving a job as an assistant for two studio photographers in Fairfield, Connecticut. Type 55 was my favorite back then.
I’m not sure what triggered my recent obsession with all things polaroid but I was fixated on getting my hands on a camera. In recent weeks, I scored an SX-70 Sonar AF and a 600SE and I’m hoping to find time to play!
The 180 Land Camera I had tested out earlier didn’t work out. It’s a shame really because when the camera worked, it made beautiful images.
Here are the most recent images using the Polaroid 600SE (monster camera):
Making pictures used to stress me out and now it simply brings me great joy, especially the beauty of everyday things.
