Ever get tired of the easiness and overshare ability of Instagram? Maybe there can be a time in which it would just be nice to have your own memories off social media and on your walls, and in a very special way. Well, good news: we found the artists for you.
Tom Bates’ Shots/on\Stone is a Kickstarter project that seems all set to take off — and who could not love this idea? Shots/on\Stone are analog black and white prints on natural stone tiles. The process involved is a fascinating and old-school one. The stone is hand-developed after being hand-coated in photographic emulsion. The result is a minimalistic, unique shot for you to cherish.
“In a world where our memories are increasingly stored on hard drives or remotely in the ‘cloud’, I really miss the tangible, tactile relationship we used to have to real, photographic prints. Images you could see slowly appear in a darkroom, prints you could hold in your hands and not only see, but feel between your fingers.”
