Tawny and Irv came back into town for the evening and we were able to have one last hang out before they flew back to California. We shared our favorite fall ritual with them, watching the swifts roost for the night. The flock of tiny birds is barely distinguishable on Polaroid, but it was as magical as ever to watch them fly together, funneling into the chimney just as the sun was disappearing. → Peter Schweitzer

Kirsten Wiig.

Of the hundreds of Polaroids I shot at Sundance this is definitely my favorite. I wasn’t even supposed to photograph Kristen this year and at the end of the day I walked into my studio to start packing up and there she was looking at the wall of polaroids. “These are cool”. “Thanks, I’m mike. Can I shoot one of you?” “Sure”. I shot two frames and then she disapeared out the backdoor into an SUV.
