the things in the boxes that live in my closets / by Jessica Peterson

I moved houses this last week.  I have been going through all of my things and tossing out what I don't need/want and a big portion of those things have been images.  I have boxes and boxes of negatives, contact sheets, pictures, school assignments, crap and more crap.  It has been a fun process going through them all and observing scholastic progression through the images and reflecting on the 'old days'.   I have been really missing film and the grueling process of it... but not really. 

This is the first polaroid I shot with my Mamiya 645.  
PS I have been trying to sell it for a while if anyone is interested.

The beloved Holga!
I shot this top image on a drive from Utah to LA with Lou. 
Remember this Lou?

I used to cut up my contact sheets and place the mini images
in little hand-made books and draw on them, this little guy was a straggler at the 
bottom of a box, I almost threw him away.

Sweetheart Bear
This lovable giant of my dads passed away not too long ago.
We miss you Bear!

That was fun.
