Hello friends, Adam here. On Monday Mary and I upgraded Lucille and Found to accommodate more items, including some of my photographic prints. To keep up with the vintage theme I wanted to limit my collection to Polaroid prints--specifically the original, out-of-camera prints that I mated myself, not duplicated replicas.
Years ago my Grandma gave me a Polaroid 600 camera as a Christmas gift with the intention of seeing what weird pictures a 10 year old might create. I had quite the collection of images of the dog.
In the decade since, Polaroid has discontinued their film production and The Impossible Film Project took over to rescue the dying art of instant film photography. With a price tag of $3 per picture, I've become incredibly picky when I push the button, resulting in some one-of-a-kind images I consider to be more "artistic" than most.
Since the beginning of our trip I've brought my polaroid camera with me to capture the American landscape in a different style, often resulting in mysteriously dark images of hardly recognizable scenes. BUT when they do turn out...wow.
