Love is Best When it Isn't Perfect

For this shot I took some of my friend's letterpress type, put it in the refrigerator and then put it on the surface of the image as it developed. The cold and slight pressure caused the imprint. The tactile nature of the film and the letterpress was really fun to work with.

 

As always, Photoshop free except straightening and cropping. Shot on Impossible film.

 

Happy Polaroid Week, you guys. It's been a blast! The quantity and quality of the images in the pool this week blew me away! Long live instant film!

 

Oh! And today is Edwin Land's birthday. He invented Polaroid instant film. What a perfect ending to the week!

 

Buy it as a print.
