Scenes From A Car Window - Vol. 3: Polaroids from my cross country road trip. 

My Polaroid SX-70, loaded with Impossible Project PX-70, was one of the many cameras I brought along with me on my trip. It was tricky business taking these photos in mostly blinding sunlight. I had to snap the shutter then fumble to get the photo into my pocket as soon as it popped out so as not to overexpose, then I would stash it in the glove box for about 50 miles or so to let it cook. I enjoy the lack of control when using Polaroids. The color shifts and aberrations are different with each one.

Scenes From A Car Window - Vol. 2: Some black and white shots from my cross country road trip. 


The first time I saw a completely flat horizon in all directions was right around when we hit Texas. I felt a kind of panic that I wasn’t expecting. Like a reverse-claustrophobia. Once I eased into it, I never felt more free. 
Endless stretches of road, dust storms, tumbleweed, the electric air in the desert. It all felt like an old movie playing out in front of me.
