5 Frames With… Impossible B&W 600 Black Frame (Polaroid 636 Close-up) – by Andreea Andrei

I shot over 14 portraits with the Polaroid 636 Close-up. I used it in different locations (inside of a white room, outside at 9:00 AM when it was a little bit colder, outside when it started raining. My expectations for the film were not high because in my mind I wanted to have a grunge-type style – one of the reasons I choose black and white film, because I think that you can reveal more emotions and more about your subject.

In the end, after two days I had a bunch of interesting portraits and stories. I accidentally dropped the camera on the concrete and after my heart skipped a bit…thinking that I didn’t have my spare with me, it actually let me take a double exposure without having that feature on the camera 😉

When I shot the couple in the white room, we prepared to do the portrait, pressed the button and the photograph wasn’t ejected, in the first place I was, oh, please don’t die now! And I said to them, well let’s try again. I pushed the button the second time and the photograph was ejected and the result as brilliant. A double exposure without wanting it or having as a feature on my camera.

About The Author

Andreea Andrei

My work focuses on social documentary, portraiture and fashion photography sometimes, and seeks to explore the complex relationship between subject and photographer. I'm driven by the curiosity that lies between a real moment that unfolds before your eyes and how you can freeze that moment in a photograph. I'm interested in personal projects that I can relate to. I like to know the person and try to make a deep connection with them before photographing them.
