Who doesn’t love stumbling upon old, weathered Polaroids, tucked inside an old book or buried under a pile of mementos and forgotten memories?
The New York City Polaroid Project began in 2003 when Andrew Faris moved to NYC after graduating from college. He explored the city with his Polaroid camera and his curiosity, and the result is a delightful collection of images. He recently revisited the photos and decided to share them, after seven years of being stowed away.
My friend Scott has been keeping a Polaroid diary of his own — these, however, are iPhone Polaroids, and Scott’s subject is, most often, the city of Philadelphia.
You can buy prints of some smaller collections of Andrew Faris’ images here.
