Trevor Reid spoke with photography consultant Suzanne Sease on using a Polaroid SX-70 to shoot Spring Training in Scottsdale, AZ. Here are Trevor’s thoughts on how this project came about:
The Polaroid project is an ongoing personal project by photographer Trevor Reid conceptualized to give back to the people who help create the moments Trevor captures. Each time Trevor photographs a person with his Polaroid SX-70 he shoots two Polaroids and gives one away to his subject. “In some ways, I feel guilty about capturing moments and feel the need to immediately give back. This project provides a way for me to do that.”
