Samantha Almost 16
Our beautiful daughter, almost 16. every year just before she changes her age, i shoot Polaroids. titled “almost” . I started when she was almost 4, then almost 5, then 6. now 16. always a difficult shoot. always manual, no metering, no electronics or flash. these were taken with a 1950’s era crown graphic on type 79 Polaroid. I think maybe i shoot this project on the eve of her change as a way of trying to hold her back and stall the inevitable. as you can see they grow up regardless of our efforts.
