From the first time I spoke to Francisco and Justin about the blog, one of our goals has been to have a feeling of community. To not only share with you, but to have you share with us. Many of you have already submitted beautiful work to us through email, the submit page, the Flickr group and Facebook. We truly have a stash of amazing work to bring your way.
But I began wondering: What could we do to spice things up, get all of you even more involved and add some randomness and unpredictability to the site? Then it hit me: 600 exposures on a Polaroid 600 camera.
The idea is simple, a Polaroid 600 camera traveling the world to 75 different photographers where each shoots a pack of film and then sends it off to the next person. The 8 photos are then sent to us and we share them with everyone. 75 photographers (x) 8 exposures each (=) 600 images. But in order for this to this work we need your help. So we invite you be a part of the fun! We need 75 interested and committed people to sign up and join the journey.
The good folks at Impossible USA have hooked us up with a camera to get things started, and a promo code to ease the cost of film if you are a participant. All you need to do is fill out the form on this page and agree to the following terms.
1. Understand that this is for fun and is not a contest or about critique.
2. There will be some cost. Postage to the person after you and the pack of film.
3. Order your film in advance. Have the pack waiting so you are ready to shoot when the camera arrives to you.
4. You must submit all 8 of your images. This will only be fun if we see the results. Good or bad, we need all 8.
5.Please only sign up if you plan to participate.
6. Because we will be posting all images to the blog and our Facebook page, we ask that images do not contain nudity.
So, what do you think? Sound fun? Lets see the world together, 8 exposures at a time.
After you sign up, we will email you more details and further instructions.
