Thousand Things: Photographs by Jason Mraz

( 9 )

Overview

From Jason Mraz: Whenever I whip out my Polaroid camera I'm usually greeted with one of two remarks. "They still make those things?" or simply, "Why?"

Sadly, they just stopped making these things. Up until early 2008 they were readily available just about everywhere. The photographs in this book are nothing more than the most common Polaroid speeds on the market, found at your local drug or general store. None of the pictures in this ...

More About This Book

Overview

From Jason Mraz: Whenever I whip out my Polaroid camera I'm usually greeted with one of two remarks. "They still make those things?" or simply, "Why?"

Sadly, they just stopped making these things. Up until early 2008 they were readily available just about everywhere. The photographs in this book are nothing more than the most common Polaroid speeds on the market, found at your local drug or general store. None of the pictures in this collection have been altered or modified after they were ejected from the camera. Any streaks, scratches or double exposures are just some of the accidental beauty marks that lure me into this brand of instant photography.

The way a live performance is to the studio performance, so is Polaroid Instant to the Digital Format. I know I only get one shot at the subject and after the click of the shutter I have to wait two minutes before I can evaluate what I've captured. Digital Photography accepts a wider range of error at less expense. Digital Cameras are like automatic weapons. You'll most likely hit your target. The Classic Polaroid Camera is the suction cup dart gun of this advancing age. Thus, my Polaroid hobby invites me to slow down and see more on my walk through life.

This eco-friendly book was printed with soy-based inks on FSC- and ISO-certified woodfree paper. The cover stock is also FSC-certified, fully recylclable, and chlorine free. Environmentally harmless glues were used in the binding process, and all printing films, plates, and waste paper were recycled.

    Thank you for sharing, Jason!

    I've been a big fan of Jason Mraz since his first release during my college days, and I have missed him until I heard about his latest CD "We sing. We dance. We steal things." I love it. Anyone who is a real fan, who reads his journals, who really listens to the lyrics of his songs... knows that he has something to say. Sometimes straighforward, sometimes not. With this book, we see that he doesn't require his acoustic guitar to tell a story. Who wouldn't want to crawl into his head and see through his eyes? With this book, he has invited us to see moments in his travels through the lens of the Polaroid camera. It is true Mraz style, he is a minimalist, afterall. And an optimist. The pictures are funny, fuzzy, clear, beautiful, over-exposed... you name it. I completely understand why he loved this form of photography so much. It tells us to slow down, and let ourselves "develop..." notice the little things. Catch that moment, be it good, bad, or blurry! <BR/><BR/>Don't just flip through the pages, take a good look at every one, think like an artist, there is a reason each and every one of those photos was published. On top of that, it's a completely environmentally-friendly product (I work in publishing, that is an accomplishment!) Which, if you know Jason's morals, makes sense. I love this book and am so glad Mr. Mraz shared his shoebox full of polaroids with all of us.
