In April, in a spirit of gratitude for all that there is, I asked the crew to think about The Sacred Mundane
How the small things are really the big things
And to interpret this stanza from Blake's Auguries of Innocence into their own visual language of the enormous tiny.
“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
The result is a collective meditation on the power and the magnitude of the simple and the small, and also on film itself and the phenominal potential of the media and the material (the roll or canister or pack, shot and unshot) to contain worlds: to hold infinity. Footsteps in the sand lead us in, and then lead us out.
Lucy Wainwright is in a state of coveting an I-1 and a Chamonix 4x5 and will be speaking to Santa about that. Her grown up website is under construction, but in the mean time she can be found on Instagram or hanging out at the FSC Clubhouse.
Every month the FSC features a Polaroid Roundup -- a photostream of all things Instant. You may only submit one (1) photo and it *must* be a jpeg file and no larger than 20 MB. Please title the file "Title_Camera_Film_YourName.jpg" so that we may properly credit you if your photo is selected.
Next month's Roundup will be curated by Keith Mendenhall and there is no theme. You may submit your shot here.
