Photographer Alessandro Michelazzi recently attended the 91st “Pitti Immagine Uomo” male fashion fair in his city, Florence, Italy. While there, he shot a creative portrait project in which he asked attendees to pose for and hold up Instax instant photos of themselves.
The Instax picture in each of the portraits was captured using a Lomo’Instant camera by Lomography.
Michelazzi says that the minutes spent waiting for the instant photos to develop helped slow down what would ordinarily be a snappy portrait process, allowing him time to get to know each of the subjects a little more.
One of the people Michelazzi met and photographed at the fair was photographer Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist.
Here are some more of the picture-in-picture portraits Michelazzi made:
