Wait. What's this? Can it be? A Holga shot and not a Polaroid?! Yes it's true! A Holga shot and not a Polaroid! I've forgotten how much I love my Holga(s). It's crunch time, and I had to drive a half hour north to my hometown yesterday and shoot some things for my upcoming show at Finch Lane in SLC at the end of the month. I'll have 8-10 pieces from my Local Color project in the show, along with photos from my fellow Salt Lake Toy Camera pals Amanda Moore and Brett Johnson. We applied for the show over a year ago and out of the 100+ entries, we were among the 20 selected. Pretty snazzy. I'm so excited about it. The reception is on February 27th from 6-8.

And don't forget about "For the Love of Polaroid" at Saans downtown. It's going to be rad. The opening is February 20 from 6-10. Tomorrow I'm framing my 27 Polaroids that'll be hanging among works by Elizabeth Soule, Amanda Moore, Joshua Caldwell, and Sean Tubridy. I'm stoked. Come check it out if you're in the neighborhood.

I love this.

Are you exhibiting original Polaroids or prints? If original, how are you framing them? If prints, how big are you printing?

Thanks! I'm showing one set of originals, and all the rest prints. They'll all be displayed the same, matted and framed. The prints are actual size.
