Polaroid Art

Posted by Taylor at 8:50 AM

Oh how I love Polaroids. There's something mysterious and mystical about them. Although their production has ceased to exist from my understanding, there are still many people out there who love the quality of a Polaroid instant picture. I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates the beauty that this simple yet complex little figure produces with just the click of a button.

I was first introduced to the Polaroid's wonders by my aunt while we were camping. She snapped a photo of me, at the tender age of 5, wearing a giant shirt that belonged to my grandfather, hovering over the fire. My legs were twigs, and I looked like an innocent little girl (although I assure you I was not; I was one of the most mischievous little girls, but that's a story for another time.)

Well, today I'm showing you a Polaroid artist whom I've recently discovered and admire - Grant Hamilton. See the picture above? Yes, he took that.

His way of capturing the vividness of the colors is magnificent; almost gives you a kind of retro, seventies feeling. I love the bold, bright colors in his photos, and how the closeups make you wonder what the whole thing looks like (and makes you want to see what it looks like.)

I hope you like this little find - I know I did. He inspires me to work harder with my own photography in order to capture beauty in a vivid, bold way.
