I'm making a book of Polaroids. I'm going to spend half the year meeting new people and collecting portraits.
I've got to keep taking photographs. IT"S IN MY BLOOD NOW! The hunt for a new face, a new person and personality to interact with is a great reason to be alive and in possession of a camera.
I discovered Polaroids last year, as well as the new purveyors of this unpredictable medium, The Impossible Project. I took a good number of Polaroids last year, but it's a new year. I want to make a book filled with all of the people I'll meet as this year gets under way. And these aging little mechanical wonders eat film, so I need your help to get a pack (or 25).
It being a new year, The Impossible Project is starting fresh as well, and they have some old stock I can get a bit cheaper. With the acquisition of this film and the success of this project, I will collect all of the best shots and the stories behind them into an 80 page book for all to see. Once it's finished ever one of you will be able to read the entire thing digitally for free.
The funds I raise here will be used to get the film needed for this project and to create and ship you guys some of the lovely rewards listed to the right.
Hopefully I'll be able to run wild out there in the world, taking photos with film until the cameras eat the last of it.
