Yeah, they look way more awesome and beautiful than anyone else’s Polaroids.

Wow. I’m glad Tarkovsky and Antonioni weren’t the witnesses at my wedding. It would be beautiful, but I’d never be sure any of it had really happened.
Having just watched a movie by Popogrebskiy, Russia definitely does not look like that. I am reminded of Peter Greenaway on Tarkovsky:”I have no truck with mysticism.”
Apparently Tarkovsky shoots the mumble jumble from his eyes and covers what he sees with miasma.
I previously had a theory that Tarkovsky had special mutant powers that enabled him to control the weather but see now that I was wrong. Apparently he just had the power to control light.
Thanks for enabling me to discover that website. The poetry is wonderful!
I wonder what he could do with Instagram and brunch.
Beautiful indeed. And even better if viewed while listening to BWV 639!
Gorgeous. Thanks for linking this.
Actually, at a quick look they are more interesting than just about everyone else’s Polaroids. I’m not that partial to pictorialism myself, but that’s just me. Thanks for the link.
They are beautiful, but Andre Kertesz could handle Polaroids pretty damn well, too.
I like those polaroids more than I like his movies. Also, some of the atmospherics in some of those shots may well be the progressive action of the developer chemistry, leading to that old time, instagrammy look.
Instagrammy is what I think of when I think of old things.
Instagranny, for when you need a grandma right now.
Also, holy fucking fuck.
