Just discovered a pair of fellow Pola-enthusiasts in Chris and Katie, proprietors of Fading Nostalgia. Their latest project is a book of Polaroid photographs taking along the Big Road: Route 66, highway of mid-century vacation dreamers turned open-air museum of dusty, disappearing Americana. Needless to say, it’s perfect fodder for Polaroid film, itself a vanishing medium (as well as Impossible Project film, which they used for part of the project). Also, the Polaroid color palette—saturated color, soft greens, that unique blue dye—is a curiously excellent match for the sun-bleached signage of Route 66.
It’s a self-published project, and you can read about it and order here. I’m doing that now.
