"The idea for this project stemmed from looking at old Polaroids that my parents shot when I was a kid and how they would write on the images with dates and locations. It was my first real exposure to photography but I remember peeling off the backing and anxiously awaiting for the magical images to appear. I loved the nostalgic and timeless look of the images. After some digging around, I found a camera that is in production today that is similar to a Polaroid called a Fuji Instax. It still produces instant prints but as a rectangular format rather than the traditional square Polaroids. There was no backing to peel but I still enjoyed the anxious feeling as I waited for that image to appear. Despite the seemingly useless act of shaking and waving the photograph, I couldn't help myself, feeling it was actually going to speed up the process. I spend so much time directly photographing President Barack Obama that I thought I would stop and take a look around during my assignments and take "snapshots" of the events going on that are attached to the Presidency but that didn't actually include Obama. Because we are moving so fast running around while covering the President, some of the time, I would only have a moment to shoot the picture, throw them in the bag and would have to check later to see what image was produced. It wasn't 10 frames per second or a digital image. Most of all I liked slowing down the process of photography to its basic format. A snapshot of time in the world that I live in." - White House photographer Jim Young 20 PHOTOS
