Pow! Wow! Long Beach Instant Photo Series

pow-wow-long-beach-desilu-munoz-MADSTEEZ

Can you tell that we had a lot of fun at Pow! Wow! Long Beach last week? The week-long international mural festival gave artists massive canvases and photographers intriguing subjects to shoot. Our two staff photographers, Erwin Recinos and Desilu Munoz, took tons of digital photographs, but also captured the festival's artists on instant film cameras.

Erwin’s weapon was the Polaroid 600SE and Desilu carried a 1st generation Instax Mini. Both cameras managed to catch the attention of the muralists, who wanted to get a look at the photographs as soon as they popped out. This lead to Desilu having the idea to let the artists sign their personal portraits. Until the next Pow! Wow!, we bring you this unique set of instant photos, follow the link for more!
