Travel Pool Polaroids

Aged to perfection like a fine wine, these Polaroids sat in a dusty shoe box under my bed for nine months. I made these frames on May 26, 2010 on a trip to California with President Obama while I was interning for The New York Times. They were taken with an old Polaroid Land Camera #250 and Fuji FP-100C instant film. There's something strangely gratifying about not being able to see a photograph for more than half a year in this digital age where the constant deadline looms. I'm just happy they survived being stuffed into my Newswear chestvest for two days of constant crawling, running, and jumping into helicopters. Thanks for looking, friends!
