Hello! A man took a polaroid picture every day from 1979-1997. That’s almost 20 years of photographs. I’m glad polaroids are coming back.

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.
Emily has written 100 articles for us.
the first thing I thought was “damn, I wish I could afford a polaroid a day.” I used to be super into polaroids, until they hit $20 for ten. (it’s something like 10 cents a photo on the film I shoot!) regardless, this is really a beautiful thing.
i love shit like this! when people do anything artistic every day really. how do they do it? it’s cahrazy.
i have 4 rolls of polaroid film right now! so far i am mainly hoarding it even though it cost much mucho dinero on ebay;
polaroid film costs that much? you have to be kidding me. that’s ridiculous. shouldn’t it be dirt cheap now that digital cameras have taken over the world?
it’s because they stopped making polaroid film so the value went way up.
