Vintage Hats

Lynne, a photographer friend from San Diego, recently came to stay with us.  We had such a good time photographing together around these familiar haunts of mine, and it was refreshing to see our area anew through her eyes.  These hats are from a local store where I shop, but I had never asked before if I could photograph them.  I'm glad Lynne did!  I can't wait to see her take on them.  Here're mine...

The model here was added later.  She is Candace, one of my former students.

The Impossible Project

Recently my daughter and I went to NYC to meet an artist friend visiting from Brazil.  After a wonderful time walking around in Chinatown, we wound up at 425 Broadway at the gallery of the new Polaroid film company, The Impossible Project.  An amazing space, and an even more amazing product.  I have long been a fan of the SX-70 camera, and the possibilities for creativity that it affords.  Dean and I taught SX-70 manipulation classes in the '90s, as well as the making of Polaroid transfers, and we still own 17 Polaroid SX-70 cameras!  So how glad are we that we can now buy the film again!  It's not cheap, this analog world, but I scraped my pennies together and got 4 boxes of various films.  They're very fussy as to storage, too, temperature, and such, so we'll see how it works.  I have a shoot planned for Monday with a beautiful model, and I'll fire off a few shots with some of the Silver Shade.

Here's my friend Rogerio from Brazil, taken in the Impossible Project gallery space.
