pics : polaroid & eames
I saw a wonderful short film about the Polaroid SX-70 made by Charles and Ray Eames on The Mid-Century Modernist this weekend. This stylish promotional film shares the fun of photography and provides an interesting explanation about how to use the camera and its functionality. The film was produced in 1972 and the diversity of the people featured in it is really wonderful. I also love the sound of the camera and the actual photos, of course.
The post also led me to the wonderful website of graphic designer, Jason Santa Maria (another JM), who shares his love for the camera and some very helpful tips for those of us who couldn't resist the temptation any longer after seeing that film and had to jump on over to ebay for her very own (better get some more film + a filter). Oh dear, I'm officially on creative overload! But, I finished my floor mat and it is now a tablecloth for our yellow kitchen ;). Pics and ideas for the 'new' mat in better color choices for a gray bathroom to come.
Hope your weekend was great!
