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.

Charlotte and Sabine

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.

Camping with Kelly

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

That was fun. 

Paper And Ink Have Special Relations by Jessica Peterson

I have been drawing quotes and thoughts in my book lately
I had to share this toe one below and a few others while I am at it.

Yesterday I was sitting with Oliver and my feet were up on the coffee table.
Oliver says to me, "Jessica, where did your toe go? What happened?"
He was referring to the gap between my big toes and the pointer toe (??).

Oliver drew this of me... I look so happy and I LOVE my big, long fingers and hands.

Practicing shark drawings

and some more

I drew this right before we shaved Jordan's beard for that time lapse a few days ago

I wrote this after my mom told me that max tried to find a "way out" of the yard under the porch to get to me after I left the house one afternoon, he got stuck and she had to fish him out...

Church drawings... Honestly I can listen better when I draw... I promise.
My 3 dogs.

Thanks for letting me share.
