In this era of post production photoshop madness, it is refreshing to experience the simple visual joy exhibited in the exquisite new book of SX-70 photographs by Meg Schultz.

The images are extraordinary, nostalgic and timely. Since Polaroid ceased to manufacture instant films in 2009, the book is a bittersweet reminder of the wonder of watching an image appear slowly before your eyes. An analog predecessor to digital imaging.
Kudos to Ms. Schultz for reminding us to take the time to see the world with a creative vision! Thanks for sharing your images in a beautifully designed book.

No wonder Kodak ran into resiistance when it planned to retire the Polaroid camera. Meg Schultz's pre-digital collages give us a compelling example of what can happen when talent, vision, curiosity, energy and the stars align. Lucky us!
