They were shot a long time ago by my good friend Ronnie Andren (check out his Tumblr here), one of the best street photographers around.
For the longest time, I couldn’t decide what to do with the images. They don’t really make frames for Polaroids (probably because nobody shoots them anymore — too bad! It’s a lost art!) and 4 x 4 Instagram frames are too small. Besides, I thought framing them individually might give the pics too much gravitas. Polaroids are meant to be casual. So I bought an 11 x 14 canvas and laid them out in a scattered collage style.
I stuck the canvas behind an 11 x 14 frame. I’m going to look at the assemblage for a few days before I Mod Podge the backs of the pics. I want to make sure this is the best collage I can come up with before it becomes permanent. (Looking at it now, the entire assemblage could be bumped lower somewhat.)
Do you have any old Polaroids? Or for that matter, old film photographs buried in a box somewhere?
