Our life is full of flowers and plants. If there’s a free spot in our flat, you can bet it fill be soon occupied by amazing plant. I set myself a goal to take a photo of each plant I find interesting for some reason.

Feels like it wasn’t touched in last 20 years, or that it really doesn’t fit into the scenery? I like these places and I want to capture them on my SX70. Instant photography is like keeping a diary you can return to anytime you want. In this sense it’s not lost at all.

It’s probably about 4 years ago when we bought our first instant camera. We approached it as being a tool for documenting day-to-day life, as our diary. This attitude changed very recently, when I was packing cameras for our road trip through France. I decided our Instax Neo would be perfect companion for these amazing moments. It was actually quite a challenge to get a good picture from it, and a lot of pictures has been thrown away in the process. However I enjoyed this process and this brought me into buying Polaroid SX70, hoping to have more predictable results. My current collection of instant cameras allows me to control the process to some point, but also leaves space to this awesome unpredictability of instant media.

In the moment Fujifilm announced discontinuing of FP100c packfilm the price went straight up on all markets. In this time I didn’t have any experience with this amazing film. I soon became nostalgic and realized I would like to do a photography project during our road trip, all on this instant media. The prices and general unavailability however put my project to ice. It was a sad moment, but I guess all bad is there for something good! Our road trip should end in Budapest, visiting Art Photo Budapest. I got into the conversation with a lady in analogfoto and she gave me a hint about where I might get some FP100c packs. Being unable to speak Hungarian it took quite a while, but finally I was standing in a shop/warehouse with cart full of FP100c packs. The sellers couldn’t probably believe it, but it was like Christmas. I was able to get 60 packs of FP100c for a very good price, which I guess will allow me to get into this France project one day, as well as some other projects.
