This project is about all the photos that would never see the daylight otherwise. They are scratched and beat up. Have spills of food and coffee. And beach sand from countless coastal trips pressed firmly into their emulsion.
I started using impossible film in 2010 when it was still in its testing phase. The Saturated pictures they created were truly surreal... work of art themselves. The unpredictable nature of the medium proved just as addicting as actually getting the show. It inspired me to begin using the film exclusively for the last year.
I wanted for all of them to be presented together in one body of work to show how ever a throw away photograph has value. As a whole they represent everything that's right about photography. The enjoyment of it not for the pictures sake but because of the whole action.
It satisfies my senses, I hope it satisfies yours.
