New York Living rooms / Dominique Nabokov

New York Living Rooms is not exactly about interior decoration. Although it represents a special stylistic and aesthetic approach, it is above all a document. No rearranging, no adding of bouquets, no use of floodlights. I approach the living rooms like I approach the people I photograph: a portrait as close to reality as possible.
I have always been an advocate of photography free of heavy equipment; if I can avoid strobe, flash, and even a tripod; I do. I believe in mobility. For this book I used the Polaroid camera 600 SE, this time with a tripod and the Polaroid Colorgraph type 691 film, which provides a full color positive transparency in 4 minutes (exactly the time it takes to boil my eggs)–what a thrill and relief it is to have the result right away! Color photography is rarely a satisfying medium–too beautiful or too ugly, and mostly banal. With this particular film I like the accidental, eccentric colors. The color tones do not alter the impact of the image.
This lightweight, unobtrusive, and fast approach to shooting, with itsaccidental and immediate results, gave me the wonderful feeling of being a sleuth-voyeur. I could easily go on and on, opening the doors of New York City for years–what fun! Unfortunately it seems impossible: this film has been discontinued.
