she . hit . pause

She Hit Pause Studios, Inc. was created by
Matt Schwartz, photographer, and Kate Shawver, web designer/developer, in Spring of 2002." I've long been enamored with photographs that are taken TTVF -- the color (or lack of) and grainy texture of the images feels personal, as though there's a forgotten memory waiting to come out of each picture.

Matt Schwartz' photographs (though they're Polaroids, not TTVF) evoke a similar feeling, but one that's discernibly more visceral. The pictures are larger than just memories - they're complete stories. Really. Fascinating. Stories.

All images (and so many more) can be purchased on his website in different sizes, framed or unframed.
