Something about Polaroids that makes the subject feel so far away. You can take a Polaroid of your best friend, shake it, and have it look like someone you used to know. It is able to take something and give it an instant history, a story. Grant Hamilton takes photos of the ordinary, the mundane, and all the other things you take for granted, and he does it through the 3x3 square. The Polaroid camera is a 6-year-old. Because it doesn't have the experience, maturity, or the technology, it is capable of viewing the world as merely a bright innocence. Or... these are just pictures of lines.
