It wasn't until this past year that I truly realized how important emotions are. How important (I feel) it is to fully be able to put yourself out there. By no means do I think I've fully done that, it's a process. If we all have emotions why should we judge others for having them as well. Why are we so afraid to show these emotions to others. We're afraid of judgement among other things. Afraid we won't be looked at the same, viewed as strong or be outcasted. Afraid that our "ugly cry" is going to put us to shame. Today I really want to open up to all of you. A lot of the time I shame myself for having emotions. Although it's not good it's what I do, it's a work in progress. Over the course of almost a year now I have tried to document myself when I feel at my weakest/vulnerable points. I personally feel for myself it's important for me to share these photos. Most of the time I feel like I shouldn't have the feelings I do and people don't cry often. Completely untrue. I want to share these to show you all that you aren't alone and to also say fuck you to self judgment and judgement from others. Although I have not been consistent with my documentation it's a start. I want to explore emotions a lot more in the next year within myself as well as my art practice. This is just the beginning. Always remind yourself that your feelings and your feelings, you can feel how you want to feel.
My last two shots from my two packs of @polaroidoriginals Color 600. I NEED MOAR. This is excellent film. Beautiful colour, saturation and contrast and lovely inky blacks. And it’s really incredibly sharp. IMHO it’s the best film ever produced by The Company Formerly Known As Impossible. #polaroidoriginals#impossibleproject#polaroid#CreateOriginals
Welcome to a #throwback to my first year of getting into shooting and using ex #ImpossibleProject and newly #PolaroidOriginals , and also original #Polaroid600 instant films! You can look here at my first ever Impossible photo taken, using their expired bag of « PX COOL 600 Silver Shade » black & white film. I used a #Polaroid636 Talking Camera for that. It features some zombie cosplayers at the #Animasia festival in Bordeaux, France. I wasn't aware of the frog tongue to protect the shots at that time, and so the photo is very pale and uncontrasted but it was an amazing experience seeing that old instant Polaroid camera working again!! That was photo was taken on September 2015. Photos of that long throwback will be displayed on my first ever Polaroid #SLR680 camera. I hope you'll enjoy my story! 📷❤💛💚💙🎞 #InstantFilm#InstantCamera @polaroidoriginals @polaroid #theimpossibleproject#PolaroidCamera#ImpossbleFilm#Polaroid#Impossible
This isn't sometimes, yeah it's for always/ If I'm gonna love you with all of my heart/ And if there is no more time, this always remains/ Even as the world spins itself apart...🎶 @polaroid #IFoundYou#AlabamaShakes#MMMS#firstkiss @rosaleenmcgill6
After several weeks of travel, I can finally go through all my instant photos. Here are a few of my favorite Polaroids from New Mexico, Canada and here. (Instax mini up next). My favorite is the second slide 👉🏼
