Looking Back at the Twin Towers

From the Archive | Polaroid

Twin Towers (World Trade Center), circa 1979
While compositional principles maintain constant importance over time, the meaning of a photograph's content can change.

During a year off from college, I lived in New York City, worked as a camera salesman and often photographed with a Polaroid SX-70. © John Nordell

I love polaroid film...true polaroid film! It is an interesting composition as well, I get the feeling of leaning back as I look at this image! Very imposing!

Thanks Kym, there is nothing quite like SX-70 color and feel. That B&W shot on your site, Holga, I think, double exposure?, is very engaging, painterly.
