JOIN DOC ON AN INSTANT ADVENTURE
Sitting here at the airport and looking at the plane that will soon take me to Tokyo, I take my very first picture of this journey. Slowly peeling it apart I can not help but getting sentimental and remember my last "pack film journey" a few years ago.
Back then, I visited the very last Polaroid packfilm factory based in Scotland. Together with Paul Telford I went there just a few days before they started dismantling it. Not knowing anything about production I could not even try to take any action - all I was able to do back then was to take some photos:
Now, hopefully the outcome of this journey will be much more positive. But honestly, when I think about the days ahead, I do feel big respect, a little bit of fear and also a lot of pressure on my shoulders - even if I always try to convince everybody that IMPOSSIBLE is my best speciality...
I simply have to find a good way to win the trust of the Fuji management. Because this time we are talking about the very last machines for this wonderful instant film material, and if I fail this iconic beauty will be gone forever.
Please do keep your fingers crossed & thank you for all your support!
