Instant Dreams


Went to see a film called Instant Dreams about people chasing the dream of Polaroid Instant film in the years since its demise. Very strange film with lots of gratuitous and superfluous stock footage filling it out. Highlighted Edwin Land’s prescience about a world in which people could engage socially with images they could shoot all day long with a pocket camera no larger than a wallet – but with no sense of irony that today’s smartphones have achieved exactly that. As if to prove the point, here’s my shot of someone photographing the final frames of the credits with their iPhone.
