KC Beachy.

These are old, but most people miss them on my other site and I just found the box of prints again. I really wish I had a digital camera when I made these. I had to scan these 99 here, and I made them too small a scan back when, so to do the project correctly now, will simply never happen….

At my friends wedding in PA, I met KC Beachy. A week after the weekend I met her, I flew to Colorado to see her again for another weekend. I made some photographs that weekend, but the most joy was had with polaroids, we couldn’t stop making them and kept buying more and more.

The weekend after that, I went to Europe for the first time, taking a polaroid of her smiling with me. When I first called her, I told her I was looking at the Mediterranean and looking at her picture. She didn’t believe me, so I took a picture of her polaroid and the view. Before my short time in Europe was over, I made over 500 of these images.

I put all 500 in a box and mailed them to her. When we spoke next she said it was the best gift she ever got, yet I never saw her again… (her choice, not mine).
