About the Prize
Polaroid transfers have a mystical quality about them, particularly when the image is of an angelic girl playing with a toy plane. But most of She Hit Pause’s prints conjure up a similar dreamlike state. Relying on his friends for models, founder Matt Schwartz is known for his serene prints whose subject manner focuses on women and surfing. The photographer uses large format Polaroids to capture beautiful images much like the one up for grabs here—a personal favorite of his! You can check out Matt’s Krrb corner to see what else he has available for a holiday gift for a loved one or even yourself!
Hi Matt! Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your business?
I’m a Polaroid artist currently obsessed with capturing whimsical images of women and surfing. All of my “models” are friends or people that own my work. I live and work in Park Slope, Brooklyn where there is rarely a moment that separates living from working, though in a good way.
Why would one of your prints make a great gift and what should the winner do with this particular one?
This is a great gift to keep for yourself or give to someone special or that you want to be special in your life. Personally, I would just keep it.
What are you hoping to get as a gift this year?
I order presents for myself often. I justify them as possibly props for shoots. I am hoping to land a shoot/campaign for one of the few companies I have my eye on. Other than that I will take myself somewhere special to surf and shoot in January. As far as a gifts from other people, I just want books or music.
