Last weekend at the Pitchfork Music Festival, crowds swooned to sets by Pavement, Big Boi, LCD Soundsystem, Neon Indian, Robyn, Modest Mouse, and many more. A photography crew from Polaroid was on the scene to document the performances, as well as gather a series of intimate, candid shots of festival attendees enjoying the events.
No doubt if you were there you noticed these not so candid camera people. But in addition to stealing your amish soul, they actually put together some pretty neat shots and collages with their Polaroid 300 instant film which you can check out on their Facebook page.
We here at CoS have a pretty nifty Polaroid 300 Instant Camera we’re letting go of and a pack of film to go with it. Are you sick of your friends asking to see your digital camera or phone after you take a picture of them? Don’t you wish you could just hand them the picture and get on with your life? Look no further, it’s yours! Almost…
Much like Sir Lucious here, we want to see your self-portrait. And no, don’t just send us your droll, ironic MySpace profile pic of you staring off into the middle distance at your fixed gear and Wham! records. We want you to use that artistic sensibility in you, and send us the most creative self-portrait. Did you shoot it with a digital camera? Did you paint it? Did you do what Rene Magritte did? We want to see you, and we want you to have done it. I’ll tell you right now, though, if we get any, um, “chat roulette” photos, they will be disqualified. So keep it clean, classy, and creative. We’ll announce the winners via email.
