I love this photo by the photographer Mike Slack. Mike lives in Los Angeles and has published two volumes of his work, "OK, OK, OK," and "Scorpio." I found his pictures from a link on Allison V. Smith's blog, and his website is a real joy to experience. Believe me, you'll get sucked in.

Polaroidness is easily lovable, but Mike to me is a Polaroidist's Polaroidist. His graphic imagery, the way he isolates elements, and his use of color - all add up to the perfect fit for the whole process. Not too many photographer's eyes embody the soul of the equipment they use, so I sure hope Mike has a fridge full of SX-70 film.

The website flashfilm.com interviewed Mike how he works.
