So this weeked at Coachella there was a guy taking pictures with his Polaroid. The thing was he was only taking pictures of candid moments, or atleast catching people of guard and taking their picture.

I was just wondering if anyone knew who he was? Or if anyone knew how to view the pictures that he took?

he was walking around the campsite beer gardens near my daily "gazebo hangout." i saw him take a pic of somebody from under the gazebo w/ the target obviously oblivious to his notions. i figured he was trying to sell poloroids for a couple bucks, but he wasn't conversing with anyone. kinda creepy i thought. would be interesting to see what his "collage" might look like tho.

I saw at least 3 Polaroids - they were all taking pictures - One of them was then leaving the pictures behind...cool found photo for the future, I guess.

I saw this guy. I was near the KROQ tent and the mist fans and he walked up to the guy in front of me and just stared at him. The guy looked at the polaroid man and he snapped a picture without saying a word.

The guy didn't know what to do, so he just said "Thank you".

The Polaroid man said "Any time". And walked away.

It was pretty fucking weird.

Maybe it was Jeremy Kost (http://www.style.com/peopleparties/street/050107)?

And yeah, the polaroid aesthetic is getting annoying.

THAT GUY WAS FUCKING WEIRD!!!!!!!!!!!

He took my picture and just waited until it came up and just looked at it and said Yup Yup thats good.

This Scot that was standing next to us was fucking freaked out he didn't want us to leave him by himself. Instead of asking us where we were from he ask where do you live!.

He also looked like a Child rapest with his really thin Mustache. He also only had alot of pictures of men.

Well the thing was that he was capturing "candid" moments because they are more real...
not ones were people pose with their fake smiles...
YOU KNOW?

That guy was scummy. I think he said his name was Josh. He chilled at our camp for a few minutes but almost right away my mates called him out on contradictory statements that he made about himself, but never explained. He tried selling pills to us on the last night, but none of us take pills, especially from random weirdos. Wish I had taken a picture of him though. If I see him next year, I'm sooo calling him out.
