Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615194699, Hardcover)Jason Mraz is a Singer/SongSurfer, by his own admission. His albums are sold and shared all over the world. Those songs and sharings have led Jason to a life of constant travelling. However, he never leaves his San Diego home without his trusty, vintage Polaroid camera. We say vintage because they don t make them like they use to; in fact, they don t make them at all anymore. But Jason loves the analog approach to photography, recording the moment with little to no chance of going back for another shot or correcting the color later in some software program. As these photos collected in shoe boxes, Jason was encouraged by his good friend Graham Nash to put them into a collection before they faded away (inherent in the Polaroid process). That collection, a thousand things, became available in October, 2008. The book, which includes a forward from Graham Nash, offers 54 Jason Mraz original photographs, including several self-portraits, as well as sunrises and sunsets, interiors and exteriors, pastorals and seascapes, hotel rooms and terminals, buildings and food, as well as some dogs and stuffed lions, with some bright and some obscured, some sharp and some blurry and all taken with the poetic and sardonic eye of Jason Mraz. All of the photographs were taken on a stock, classic Polaroid camera with "film that you might have found at your local drug or general store," as Jason s reveals in the book's liner notes. "None of the pictures in this collection have been altered or modified after they were ejected from the camera," Jason continues. "Any streaks, scratches or double exposures are just some of the accidental beauty marks that lure me into this brand of instant photography." In accordance with Jason's wishes, the book was printed on FSC & ISO certified woodfree paper. The cover stock is FSC certified as well, fully recyclable and chlorine free. All printing was done with soy-based inks. Only environmentally harmless glues was used in the binding process. All printing films, plates and waste paper were recycled. The book is intended to be a reflection of Jason's world through a refracted lens and a testimonial to a great piece of American invention, the Polaroid Instant Camera.
