The Sunday paper featured Phillipe Halsman’s jump photographs (!!) which look like an extraordinary amount of fun.

“When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping, and the mask falls, so that the real person appears.”

An eternity of rumors and questions have been circling regarding the future of Poloroid film (what now?). Hell, as far as practicality goes, who wants to use a digital printer during model castings? So, some fellas are saving face with “the impossible project”. You can get pretty close to the old-regular Poloroid coloring (though everything has a very vintage-esque looking tint) or choose from (1-3 color) packs.  It’ll certainly set you back a pretty penny…So just wait a year and there will be at least 40 people producing them.
