Impossible Project PX70 PUSH & Impossible Project PX600 Silver Shade - Libraries

After the trip to the Cleveland Botanical Gardens this past weekend, I headed over to the Kelvin Smith Library to take a couple more photos. The Kelvin Smith Library, part of Case Western, is really quite interesting inside, and somewhat modern in terms of Libraries. I had visited there before to do some filming for a TV Spot, and it quickly came to mind again when I was looking for some good indoor locations to shoot.

The main picture in this post, taken with an SX70 on PX70 PUSH, is definitely one of my favorite shots of the entire weekend. This old book was sitting on a shelf just like this...wrapped nicely in a ribbon, gold leaf edges, and a great worn leather cover. It was titled 50 Years of Make Believe. The photos below are from the same area of the library. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of rows just like this, and each is on a motorized track so that you can select which isle you'd like to walk down. These were taken with a Polaroid One Step on PX600.
From there, I ended up quickly browsing through another library down town, the Cleveland Public Library. In stark contrast to the first, this is a gorgeous old building... beautiful architecture, marble and stone, just an entirely different feel and look. These images, again, are with an SX70 on PX70 PUSH.
Next up, I hope to scan and share some emulsion lifts that I did with the images from the Cleveland Botanical Gardens...

  1. Your photos are wonderful - really beautiful. Just one peripheral note: Kelvin is part of Case, not CSU.
