Elle Long and Penny Felts at Twist etc. december 2012




The Decades Project

PENNY BIO:

I am a film/instant photographer. I spend my time trying to put dreams and poetry into images. 
I have studied photography for a good part of my life, in classrooms or bookstores.
I have been published in multiple issues of LightLeaks magazine, and JPGmag.
My photographs have been in shows in NY, Italy, Paris and London.

ELLE BIO:

Elle Long is an independent model living and working with a passion for film; both Polaroid and celluloid, print and motion.
She has been printed in the pages of a handful of magazines including Vigoré! and Votive, and walks on runways and into films and music videos.

STATEMENT:

Polaroid artist Penny Felts has always had a love for vintage clothes, jewelry and cameras. A shared love of the aesthetic of old and a strong mutual admiration brought Penny and Elle together for this project. What began as Penny's brainchild became a complete collaboration between two artists - from research to wardrobe and styling, hair and makeup.

Originally eight diptychs from the 1920's through the 1990's, a version of this series was published as an 'Eight Exposures' blog by theimpossibleproject.com. We've since added two decades (1910 & 2000's), and have chosen to display several of the outtakes for this show.
