600 On A 600: Lucy Taylor

It makes us happy to be feature another photographer taking part in our 600 On A 600 project. Today we feature 8 exposures from Camera 1, shot by Lucy Taylor. I am going to go ahead and say, that this is one of my favorite submissions to date. I think, as a child that grew up around Polaroids, there is a connection to them that is different to the younger generation discovering Impossible for the first time. When I look back at family albums, they are littered with Polaroids. Snapshots of my childhood. Random pictures of life around the house captured spontaneously and tucked away.

When I opened the email from Lucy, I smiled. I was taken back to my childhood, in a house with toys on the floor and dishes to be done. Bath time, bed time, play time and dinner. It all came back. Thats the power of images like these. I know Lucy will look back on these shots one day, maybe with her daughter next to her. The daughter will laugh or get embarrassed, if she has friends around. Lucy will smile and remember how precious the time was with her.

Thank you Lucy for using the camera to capture memories. You made my day!

“These were all shot in our home and on Impossible color film for the 600. As much as I am a photographer, I am also a Mom. I wanted to portray what life is like with a toddler. Her ordinary day to day activities which can seem so mundane but can hold a lot of joy in being so ordinary. 
 
I really appreciated the opportunity to take part in this project– a reminder to put down my iPhone and capture real life in a different way.” – Lucy
