Hello again, 8 Exposures fanatics! We’re back with another splendid entry in our instant film interview series. This week, we spoke with Andrew Millar…
1) Q: What kind of Polaroid camera(s) do you use?
A: I have quite a few SX-70 cameras; some work better than others but I mostly tend to use my trusty old brown SX-70 Land Camera 2.
2) Why do you like instant photography?
A: It can be unpredictable and love it when you try to control or play with the outcome and end up with something unexpected and unique.
3) Q: What is your earliest memory of instant film?
No one in my family owned an instant camera so my earliest memory would be going to get my passport photos done when I was a child in an old-fashioned photo booth.
4) What’s your favorite Impossible film type?
5) Q: What are your favorite subjects to photograph?
A: Where I live the everyday crowds force me to find places where there are no cars, people or noise. Old seaside towns are very romantic and nostalgic, as if time has stood still.
6) Q: Tell us about a project you’re working on.
A: I’m currently working on a series of images for an expo that I have at En Face in Paris next February so I’m busy getting ready for that.
7) Q: Who are your favorite photographers, instant or otherwise?
A: When I was at Uni and saw destroyed photographs by Arnulf Rainer, the destructiveness of his images really related to how I felt at that time, luckily Bob Ross’s joy of painting taught me to relax. I’m also a big fan of Gilbert and George. I love their large photo pieces from the seventies. Also, work by Diane Arbus and the talented Raul Diaz.
8) Q: If you could take an photo of anyone or anything what would it be?
A: Keith Richards.
Thanks very much to Andrew for taking part in 8 Exposures this week!
