The Never Ending Polaroid

This is one of the baddest assed things ive seen in awhile. Bob Nanna (of Braid/Hey Mercedes/The City on Film FTW!) takes polaroids of people holding polaroids...of the previous polaroids. It sounds a bit boring and literal, dare say almost gimmicky, at first, but upon viewing, you find Sir Nanna started this in '01 and has been continuing it throughout his extensive touring with his various many influential bands of the independent rock scene, in what ends up being an indie rock archive of sorts. This tickles my fancy both as a documentary of my hands down favorite era of music, as well as a refreshingly intelligent and creative use of the archival properties of photography.!/neverendingpolaroid
