Daan Van Der Linden is the guy you want to shoot when you bring out your expired Type 55 Polaroid film and every shot counts. Here Arto Saari captures Daan above the rim in New Zealand for the Volcom skate article inside the newest Thrasher Magazine.
55 Hi’s was started in 2010 by Ross Moody as a simple means of spreading inspiring quotes and quirky ideas. It has since spiraled out of control—in the best way possible—into an online greetings collective, of sorts. A destination for graphic goodness, tasteful typography, and artful alliteration.
At 55 Hi’s, sincere life lessons are laid delicately onto handmade french paper where they frolic joyfully, side-by-side, with cards that become shot glasses. Why? Because both of those things will make you smile, and smiling is a nice thing.
This is the second in a series of 20 portraits taken with now basically extinct Type 55 Polaroid 4x5 film. Frank W Okenfels generously gifted me a box of 55 from his personal stock and there are no throw aways or retakes for this series. 20 sheets of film equals 20 photographs to be shown no matter the outcome.
