Polatrait: Radeo


This is Radeo, she’s beautiful and incredibly easy to photograph. Again, my job here was nothing more to get that across, with one shot. One moment. This is quite possibly the very reason Polaroid is still so loved all over the world despite it slowly disappearing. There are no redos with a Polaroid. It’s just there… until you destroy it (or lose it), and so its fate is entirely up to you.

Without pretensions it’s just simply a photograph of a beautiful woman. The reason I adore the Polaroid is the way it translates light to 2 dimensions. Unfortunately I have to break the news that my SLR680 is currently dead and those cameras don’t just drop from the sky. I’m going to do do my best to fix it, but this might be its final malfunction. In which case I will have to find a new use for the packs of film degrading in my fridge.

    Sorry to hear about your camera… I have a Polaroid OneStep auto focus that has been sitting in the closet for years… I don’t see myself ever using it so if you want it it’s yours. I’ll be at Hell City for a day and my wife will be working the SG booth… let me know.

    Thanks so much for the offer I really appreciate it! Unfortunately I’ll no longer be making it to Hell City.

    Oh man, thats a bummer… I was really hoping to get a chance to meet you. I love your work and strive to get to your level. If there are any girls that will be there that you see regularly let me know… I’d rater someone get use of the camera then have it sit and collect dust.
