Really, the Spring 2019 Polaroid Week was fine, as weeks go, and I had a good time shooting Polaroids as I always do. My rampant negativity stems less from photography, than from a creeping sense of futility and inability to imagine any sort of positive future, from a personal, where am I going, what is […]
A few months back, I stumbled across a cache of long-expired Konica Film-In Panorama single use cameras on the ‘bay and bought three of them, hoping against hope that they were something like the excellent Konica WaiWai that I love so much.
