I swore that I wouldn’t get sucked into photography ANYTHING.
That’s what Zack does. He’s the photographer.
And yet here I am walking out the door everyday with my little SX-70 trying to capture moments in real time and not just in megabytes. Not in pixels.
I want something I can hold.
I don’t do well with screens. I don’t like looking at screens (she said, while typing staring at a screen), I don’t look good on screens; I am not a fan of digital period.
Give me analog or give me death.
Thus, the beauty of the Impossible Project and the loveliness that comes from their effort to bring back the analog image. Muchly much joy is derived from the sound of the camera launching into action and giving me a picture of what I just saw. Never as I originally saw it, though. Always something elusive in how differently the camera sees what I see.
I love it.
