The ‘Imperfectionism’ Guide

How to get the most out of the Polaroid I-2 camera – and the process of instant photography.

Image Alt Text

Imperfectionism is the movement of de-digitizing our day-to-day and rejecting “perfection” in order to embrace a more creative, connected life. It’s the conscious act of choosing a slower, more rewarding path: the path to mastery.

Read the Imperfectionism guide.

As part of our partnership with Magnum, we worked with some of the world’s foremost imperfectionists—Jim Goldberg, Newsha Tavakolian and Enri Canaj—to develop a downloadable PDF guide on the origins, methods and techniques of this movement. And how this approach to the craft can make you a better photographer and live a more authentic life.

MEET THE MAGNUM IMPERFECTIONISTS

JIM GOLDBERG

Known for his innovative use of text and image, Jim Goldberg has been working with experimental storytelling for over 40 years. For this partnership, Jim extends Polaroid images with text to encapsulate those living in two small Arkansas Delta communities that he sees as a “microcosm of what is going on socially and politically in the rest of the States”.
