Shit, shit, shit. Polaroid announced that it is going to quit making film, and I just bought a 4x5 view camera and ordered a Razzlock that will shoot 4x5. I don't need them any more. I have been working for a while with Polaroids trying to make a distinct image that is faux-antique. I have several projects in the works. I love the Polaroid works of Paolo Roversi and Sarah Moon and Anna Tomczak. Photographers more than anyone are at the mercy of technology and corporations. Perhaps I will learn to do ambrotypes. Seems everything else will be digital. I sure have spent a lot of money lately on things now extinct.
