從寶麗萊到自我檢討

今朝電郵內有個 Flickr mail,subject是 "Polaroid art show seeks submissions":
Hello

I'm curating a Polaroid art show in Chicago. The show will be at the Country Club art gallery on August 15th.

The show is now accepting submissions of Polaroid instant film images.

Please consider submitting images for this show!
心想 oh my god,然後我自己都wow了一下。click過去展覽的 link
Now seeking original Polaroid film images for upcoming gallery show in Chicago.

Polaroid Corporation has announced that it is discontinuing production of all instant films. To celebrate the wonder of Polaroid film and bid it farewell, we are asking for submissions for a Polaroid-only show set to take place on August 15th in Chicago, Illinois.

The goal is to have a show full of a wide variety of images showing the versatility of this disappearing medium. Therefore the theme is open. Help us show the wide range of subjects captured on Polaroid brand instant film.

讀到這裡心還在wow,誰不知...

To include your photographs in the show, please send:

    • Up to six of your best Polaroid images
    • a self-addressed return envelope for all unsold photographs
    • a flat entry fee of $10
    • Artists receive 70% of all sales.

Churrrrr...原來只是找相賣。你阿叔我影了八年,就算接有錢收的 job 實情都不是為錢做(講完自己都面紅),現在要我賣寶麗萊,未免有損個人形象。Um...於是,我在想,為什麼我還在影,還在菲林、寶麗萊,還想要Xpan...不為錢,哪為面嗎。我真的以為影這些會令我看起來有性格一點嗎。我想也許我真的以為。所以由00年起,從SX70到pinhole及mini portrait的pack film再走回去spectra然後還有square formate。我不斷燃燒過期菲林,又不斷讓未過期的變過期。更甚的我開始買超八,包括攝影器材、菲林及Projector。轉頭又開始point and shoot的135,接著是變態地搞起point and shoot的120(不是holga)。買菲林又要買香港沒有的,不是隨便找一家快圖美就能沖的。表面是為對質感之追求(huh...),實情是自我感覺良好。感覺良好不在與別不同。是你看著我,或許不知我在搞什麼,但(一般人)又不能夠很簡單地模仿我在搞的那些什麼,這是多麼有安全感。這是多麼的低能。

低能的例子可能還有更多,如Sennheiser HD414、車少幾條線就貴十倍的像底衫的面衫(我很怕無聊的details)、中學時在amazon買reference、讀那讀完都明唔晒而又跟我毫無關係的Origin of Species及Brief History of Time...我(們)與被我(們)畫條線擱於我(們)以外的他們同樣低能。同一個硬幣的兩面,沒有你高我低。

但,死性很難改,我還是想要Xpan。讓我們繼續同樣低能。

(你估哩張賣唔賣到錢?!wagagagag)
