We opened 2012 at Studio 5013 with a travel photo diary, and we’re closing with one by Pittsburgh City Paper production director, Julie Skidmore. This is what happens when you go on vacation and keep rolls of film for years before developing it: eerily beautiful time capsules unearthed from last summer or decades ago. Unblurred Gallery Crawl, December 7 through 31.

These look great in the window. They should inspire us to get all those 120 rolls of yours developed!

I’ve thought about those (the 120 rolls). I need to dedicate my time and energy to film again. The instant film is a step in the right direction!

I know, it must have been like Christmas when she got these back from the lab and saw how lovely they turned out.

I have loved this series since she first rediscovered her images. I cant wait to see it live and in person.

I fell in love with them when I first saw them too. They have such a strong narrative thread tying them together and a nostalgic, 70s feel. I imagine them working in book form.

it is like opening your brain an rediscovering your memories in a very tangible sense. The film qualiity almost makes it more real.

Seeing photos aged like this is like capturing memory – is this how we remember now, because of photography? How did people experience memory before film?
