New York + Amsterdam (a polaroid project)
A few years ago I had an idea for a polaroid project, in which I would collaborate with an online photographer friend, to create something magical together, and some lightness in the weirdness of the world wide webs. My idea was to show two different cities, from two different perspectives, in the pastel and soft aesthetics of polaroid film. Together with the lovely Andrea Jenkins I created Atlanta + Amsterdam. It was kind of magical to share this creative connection with someone I never met in real life, and I loved it so much that I knew I had to do the project again, but with another photographer, from another city. Today is the day I proudly present part two of the project, this time with my amazing and talented friend Aundre Larrow, from Brooklyn, New York.
Over the course of the following weeks we will both share a polaroid each Sunday, following a theme. We will show you our perspective, both from New York and Amsterdam, and both shot with a polaroid camera, on 600 film. Today we’ll start with our portraits, follow along if you like!
