This particular project, called “DGBTR” or “Don’t Go Back To Rockville” is from lyrics to a Pavement song that is a reaction to his view of the terrible charade of the proliferation of cheap digital photography and specifically HDR images that are homogenizing photographic processes and dulling the genre. Each print that is not a polaroid is available as a limited edition of 20 in the sizes of 8x8 and 5x7 to purchase starting at $75 and up. The polaroids posted are of course one of a kind and for sale as well. The polaroids are captured using either a Polaroid Land Camera’s (100 or 104) or a Polaroid Reporter on Fuji FP100c and Fuji FP3000 film pack photographic paper. Read Less

#DGBTR
Don't Go Back to Rockville -  Instant photographs using Fuji pack film and Polaroid cameras as well as mobile photographs by James Campbell. Most prints are for sale at the store, shop.dgbtr.com
This is another creative project from James Campbell, the photographic artist living in Washington DC who founded InstantDC in 2010. He uses Eventual Future Studios as a way to organize all of his creative and business efforts including web design, brand management, curating and showcasing artists works, art direction, and iphone development.

He describes his photographic style as “post-minimalist surrealist realism”. His photographs tend to evoke a memory from a future dystopia, where patterns of reality constructs morph between light and shadow and sentient shapes fit into an upper-dimensional superstring of infinity.

This particular project, called “DGBTR” or “Don’t Go Back To Rockville” is from lyrics to a Pavement song that is a reaction to his view of the terrible charade of the proliferation of cheap digital photography and specifically HDR images that are homogenizing photographic processes and dulling the genre.

The photographs themselves are available as originals starting at $75.00. There are also a limited number of scanned on prints of the originals that are $25 per copy and printed on photographic paper.
