Olympic Diner closed down in June due to the hyper-gentrification going on throughout the city. I went there specifically because I read on Jeremiah's Vanishing New York and shot this on 8x10 color Polaroid film made by The Impossible Project. It was a test release that needs some more work. Hopefully they will be offering it again soon. The film is perfect for what I am trying to show.

Interview with the Impossible Project by admin

Retired for the Summer featured

Today, my interview with the Impossible Project was posted on their blog. If you don't know who they are, The Impossible Project are the makers of the new Polaroid type film. The project that was featured is my "Life and Death of a Shore Town". It is about how drastically different shore towns and beach communities are during different times of the year. Now after Hurricane Sandy, the towns in New Jersey will be changed in a way that I could never imagine. I am sure a lot of people will not return or will not be able to return. The rental houses, which are primarily for young kids, will not survive or if they do there will be very few of them left. I want to thank the Impossible Project for all there support and for bringing back some wonderful film with all it's idiosyncrasies. These photos were taken with this film specifically because of the instant and often unpredictable nature of the film. To stress the temporary nature of communities.

 

Thanks.
