I have lots of random updates to share, and I’m finding that the sheer volume of news has become sort of paralyzing when I try to start a blog post. So, in the interest of moving forward, here’s an abbreviated list of my latest projects, features, exhibits, and shop updates … online and “in the wild.”
PX680 First Flush, a glorious new film from The Impossible Project, was released a couple days ago. I shot two packs for the “Impossible Test Lab” while I was in New York City last weekend. You can see my test lab photos on Flickr. (The photo above was also featured in a geeksugar post about the new film.)
Heather Champ, analogue* aficionado and one of my favorite photographers, has an inspiring new blog called Champalicious. She was kind enough to interview me for her One Two Three series. (* If you know Heather, you know why I couldn’t resist using the Canadian spelling.)
There was a lot of excitement about the release of the new PX680 film. Patrick and Emily both blogged about it, and included one of my images. The same photo was also featured on the Flickr blog last month.
Earlier this year, The Impossible Project commissioned a set of New York City postcards with diptychs of instant photos. The postcards are available exclusively at the Impossible NYC Space at 425 Broadway (5th floor) in New York. If you happen to visit the NYC Space, make sure you check out the exhibit of PZ600 images! This photo of Tang (my ultra-photogenic cat) is on display.
Today (May 7) is Edwin Land‘s Birthday! The genius inventor of instant photography is one of my historical heroes. To celebrate Dr. Land’s awesomeness, I made tiny stickers that say “What would Edwin do?” I’ll be randomly distributing them until they’re gone. Anyone who places an order from my online shop will receive a sticker with his or her package.
Last, but not least: I’m working on a new portfolio site at jesshibb.com, and will be continually adding projects. (I’d like to do more custom/commissioned work, and I think this will help demonstrate my capabilities to local and regional clients.) Let me know what you think!
If you’re signed up for my (infrequent but awesome) email newsletter, you knew about most of this last week. You also knew about the discount code that’s good for 15% off in my online shop during the month of May. If you’re not signed up, consider joining the club.
