Photographer Michael Behlen spends his spare time shooting instant film and scoping out the live music scene. His love lies in the magical sensuality of instant film: the saturated colors, never quite knowing what you may capture in a shot, and watching his film develop. His collection, “Drought City”, stands to capture the current drought taking place in Fresno, California. Using expired Polaroid Type 669 and ID UV Film compliments that idea that these places may not stay preserved and adds nostalgic quality to his work.
