Instant film lovers (or aspiring instant film lovers) will be pleased to know the new book, Instant Love: How to make magic and memories with polaroids by Jen Altman, Susannah Conway and Amanda Gilligan has hit the shelves.
Here's an excerpt from the intro of Instant Love:
The way we shoot images-slowing down, steadying our breathing, carefully considering every detail-could be a metaphor for life, a way to live mindfully in the moment and not allow ourselves to get too caught up in the past or the future. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but it's a continual practice, just like photography.
It is our hope you'll fall in love with instant photography as we have done, because there is truly no greater feeling than walking through a new city with an SX-70 in your hands and a film stash in your bag.
We are excited about the new era of instant photography being made possible by the Impossible Project and believe the future of instant imaging is truly bright.
Speaking of The Impossible Project, their new shop in Paris looks very cool.
