A Snapshot of a Campus

Over three days I took portraits of any student at Clark University who showed up, using an old 1973 Polaroid camera. I only had three minutes to catch each person’s image. No one wanted to wait the seven minutes for the instant film to develop. Of the 199 photos taken, only 8 failed. and then we enlarged 80 of them to 2’x2’. They were then installed on the humanities center’s wall, reflecting a snapshot of the community back on itself. All of the portraits were collected into a book, which will become part of the university’s archives.
