Shinjuku Golden Gai

poster for Skorj "665"

This event has ended.

"I am fascinated by the tranquility of abandoned buildings, to feel their history and to imagine their lives and the functions they fulfilled. Like the people who once used them, they have a history, and with my photographs I try and capture more than the image, but also the feelings of their abandoned spaces & the dreams, the feelings of loneliness, solitude and decay. Type-665 allows me to add more than the image, but to also include some of the feelings of these lost places as well.

For me, photography is successful when it can promote the ordinary to something special, eliciting emotion, and perhaps if it is indiscriminate in time & place too. Polaroid no longer makes Type-665, so these photographs are a collection of not only the instant memories of their subjects, but also a memory of a unique film 665."
