Desperate times call for...desperately fake measures.
This is a collection of photographs made with the ShakeItPhoto Pola...er..."Instant Photo" replicator for the iPhone. When Polaroid stopped manufacturing its instant film, I started using the application after I tore through what film I had left on hand (and through the film I could afford to buy)...and an addiction was born.
The gratification of the physical print may be gone...but the punchy color, the distortion, and the immediacy of the moment is still there.
