When I was 16, my classmates had other things in mind than me (Susann). I could only think about photography at that time, so I blew all my pocket money for it. I was especially keen on instant pictures. The immediacy, having no plan, the honesty of the moment, the thrill when the picture was hesitantly developed… it helped me to make my thoughts and feelings catchable. Instant pictures as a silent dialogue with my inner self. A date scribbled on the back, stored in a cardbox. To look at the pictures now, 15 years later, still triggers a lot. They throw me back into another life, back to another me. All the moments, long forgotten or at least hidden so far in the dark back of my mind that they could not rise without help. It is so precious to look back with these pictures. To read, to interpret the dialogues which were never put into words. I still associate a very personal and intensive history with this format, so I am even more happy, we are even more happy, about the wonderful cooperation with Fujifilm, who sparked the forgotten passion again. The next weeks and months we want to talk about the instant picture format “instax” by Fujifilm* and hopefully awake your enthusiasm as well.
We start with a special project: a small cook book with five of our favourite autumn recipes. Everywhere in our cupboards we have small notebook in which we write down recipes. When we lack inspiration, we take out these note books and browse through them. Long forgotten ideas come up again. Sometimes they are still sketchy, sometimes they are ready. How nice would it be to record them on pictures? We finally started with our INSTAX SQUARE SQ6* and it is so much fun. Pictures from our garden, the harvest, the especially delicious pancake. To give these memories a special framing, we bound our first little book. One day, we want to have a small collection. We imagine it to be great to take out the books like photo albums and to reminisce.
