Polaroid Reality with Sean Rohde

I was just recently introduced to the work of Sean Rohde. His photos instantly struck me. They were Polaroids of the American west...Haunting and surreal images of old buildings, cars, signs, trailers and anything else one might find in the desert in the 1970s (yet all taken recently). Sean's photos are a form of time travel to a place we vaguely remember or possibly have never seen, yet feels familiar. I asked him what he uses to get these eerie and decaying images, he tells me "fully manual, vintage Polaroid cameras from the 1960s and 1970s, and film that includes Type 664, Type 667, Type 669, Type 690, and ID-UV, all expired anywhere from 1995 to 2008."  He makes good use of this old film...Waste not want not indeed.
