Der Lagerist, ca 1971

Der Lagerist, ca 1971

Martin at The Photographer’s Gallery Bookshop” is a star: we had a great chat in their temporary space (William Road, near Warren Street) about all things Polaroid, Lomography, WordPress, Miami Beach and Japanese digital gadgets with weird names – and most of it in German.

Since cameras and books aren’t currently presented on proper display shelves, the temporary layout reminds me of an old convenience store with a great atmosphere.

Once I had stocked up on goodies I wanted to take a picture with my Golden SX70 – but since the light was dim I could only guess the framing whie the camera rested on a few books.

A few minutes later we looked at the outcome and were so in love with it: pure nostaliga! Martin came up with this very cool title: “Der Lagerist”, which translates into “The Clerk” or “He who looks after the warehouse”.

Thanks Martin!

Dave was about to start his night shift, having just moved into an old farm hosue a couple of weeks before.

He came to work slightly shattered, more than usual I must add. He told us that the fridge in the butcher shop downstairs broke and he had to help clear away a few dead bodies covered in maggots. Excellent…

Note to self: choose your accomodation carefully, no matter where in the world you are or what your circumstances may be.

It was late afternoon at the London Aquarium, and for some reason they had put up a blow-up Chinaman. Intrigueing!

Andy said to me, “This could well be 1947 if it wasn’t for the Chinese blow-up doll”. Very true indeed!

The grey frame of the PX 600 is subtle, yet I find it brings out the contrasts of the picture out a bit nicer than the bright white frame.

Shot on my Golden Polaroid SX 70, using Impossible PX 600.

Polaroid SX70 Land Camera Model 2 - shot on my Polaroid 600 Extreme and PX600

Several months ago I spoke to Paul Weston about the new Impossible PX films and what a cool idea the Polaroid Rennaisance was.

He happened to mention that he bought a vintage SX70 Land Camera from some bloke who used to shoot furniture with it – and the next thing I know is that he rbought it in for me to have a play. How exciting is that!

Let’s have a look under hood of this goodie, which happens to be only 5 years younger than I am.
