I’m very much enjoying the work of photographer Grant Hamilton, specifically his Polaroid work. Grant has a unique way of capturing simple geometric compositions, whether it is simple color bands or a nicely cropped outdoor scene, using the magic of a Polaroid camera. His compositions are very nostalgic, and his color work reminds me of designs that might have been found on an arcade wall in the early 80s, as well as a hint of abstract expressionist Mark Rothko.
Grant’s work is proof that aged technologies will never be lost and can still yield lovely results, which is sad considering Polaroid announced they will be ceasing to make their iconic film past 2008/2009. Enthusiasts and supporters have set up a website to do their part in keeping instant Polaroid alive, you can check it out at Save Polaroid.
