Behind the Cover

Posted by Mark Searcy on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 3:56 PM

This week's cover image was provided by resident Portland photographer John Ryan Brubaker. I ran across John's photography as I was floating through the Mercury's Flickr Pool. The cover image is part of John's diligent, and inspiring Polaroid 366 project, in which he is out to take one Polaroid a day for a year. Just the daunting task of keeping motivated to shoot a photo every day of the week is a big undertaking, but combined with the recent news that Polaroid has made the decision to stop making Polaroid film this year, the project seems to inherit an instamatic form of nostalgia.
