My first pack of Time Zero! 

A very dear, sweet, Polaroid fairy by the name of James Allen Eakins made a pack of Time Zero appear in my mailbox! I have been absolutely dying to try this wonderful film, and was starting to believe I would never be able to have a pack of my own before all that is left on the planet became too expired to use. Along came Mr. Eakins and his magic pola-wand, and I am the proud creator of a few images I am so in love with! Here are a few examples… 

I plan to someday publish a book of photography and maybe a little writing called “Grimm Tales,” and so far, I plan on this photo being the cover, so this photo is called “Grimm Tales.” It is a portrait of Lorelei Belle

This one is called “Creepiest Carousel,” or I have thought about calling it “Something Wicked This Way Comes.” It is a picture of a porcelain carousel, using a close up lens on one horse and holding an old Holga filter over the lens for a prism effect, or waving MY magic pola-wand and transforming one horse into two. (And a half. You can kinda see a third in the upper right corner.)

This one is thus far untitled, but I wrapped tiny string lights around my pigtail braids and had my husband, Justin Valentine, assist me by pressing the button after I set the exposure and framed the photo. (Not that he isn’t capable of doing all that, I just wanted it to be a true self-portrait.) This one is my favorite, exposure wise. In bright sunlight with the lens all the way open, the whole pack was this dark, which I actually absolutely love. Other than exposure, though, “Grimm Tales” is my favorite, by far, which is why I half plan to make it the cover of my so far imaginary book.

While I am at it, I will add a couple photos taken by my husband. You can see more of his work if you’d like in his Instagram gallery

(That last one is me playing guitar [obviously] because, p.s., “I can play the guitar like a mother f@*kin riot!”) 

I hope you enjoy these photos a fraction of how much I do! I felt like I won the lottery, being lucky enough to get my hands on a pack before they are gone for sad but good.

  1. You’ve really been putting that film to good use. I’m loving your work. It’s so dreamy, surreal. They’re like visual accompaniments /equivalents to a lot of music I listen to. It’s not just the aged film. It’s also your subject matter and compositions.

    1. Thank you! I am actually just figuring out how to be interactive with this dang blog thing. Thank you SO MUCH for your feedback! I certainly try… in fact, it is allk try. It is my whole life, and it means the world to me that someone has noticed and appreciates it.
