Polaroid Love!

A ton of awesome work has been submitted to both Booooooom Projects so far, so if you haven’t already browsed the Project Galleries, you’re really missing out. Kalli sent me a couple gorgeous photos last week for Booooooom Project #2 and I quickly emailed her back to see if she had any more I could see. She actually went to the trouble of scanning in a ton of her polaroids and even signed up at Flickr just to share them with me.

So here’s some more incentive to get involved in the projects – from time to time I will feature work, submitted to the projects, on the main page. Here’s a quick look at some great polaroid photography by Kalli Anne.

Kalli mostly shoots with a Polaroid 600 se and you can tell shooting with it is quite an adventure! This kinda work right here is why the 56 megapixel camera won’t be on everyone’s Christmas list. There is a real warmth and sense of nostalgia captured in an imperfect polaroid. Love it.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
