Totally mesmerizing. (hat tip to Decompos’s Blog)
When I was growing up, I barely knew my mother’s sisters due to family internecine warfare. But in my late 20’s I made a journey to Washington, DC with my then future spouse and stayed with my mother’s next youngest sister.
My aunt was a weaver and artist, whose passion was quickly manipulating the emulsion in exposed Polaroid™ film to create strange and wonderful photo effects. (In her own strange way, my mother was also a photo artist, exorcising with a sharp scissors the likeness of any family member who was currently on her sh*t list. The few photographs I have from my childhood are populated with the so-called lucky survivors. But I digress.)
It’s already old news that the “Impossible Project” succeeded in resurrecting the production of Polaroid™ films to the grateful applause of enthusiasts, and are now working on developing a new instant film camera to replace the difficult to find originals.
