  • Polaroid Unfaded: The Pursuit of Happiness

    By Julia Beyer Dec 8, 2017
    Photography has always been something that I have felt such an attraction to, but somehow instant photography didn’t really enter my focus until 2008. That was when I first saw instant photos shot by a friend, who happened to be a gifted Polaroid photographer, and was mainly working with expired Polaroid SX-70 film. I was captivated by the softness, the blueish hues of the instant film,...
