"A simple reminder of photography's power to add some permanence to the present as it fades into the past."
Collecting moments on a disposable camera may seem like an absurd idea for a professional photographer whose entire career has spanned the digital realm. However, stowing a disposable alongside my professional gear over past seasons adventures has proved to be a fun project and a simple reminder of photography's power to add some permanence to the present as it fades into the past.
No settings, no zoom, no focus. Just a moment composed and captured with a novel, yet surprisingly gratifying "click" archiving reflected light onto a roll of film until it is reawakened in the lab during processing. In a world of instant gratification, this simple process allows time to pass and memories are slightly forgotten peaking curiosity how past snapshots of life will look and feel as a matte 4x6 in hand.
This is the lab calling, your film is ready for pickup.
