Jack White is a man with a plan. Everything he does is methodical, masterfully manipulated, righteous and real, from his searing guitar stomps to his world record romps; from his late-night TV booths to his secondhand thrift store truths. Yes, Jack White is a man with a plan. And, as it turns out, Jack White also happens to be a man with a mighty Polaroid camera collection, too, and as such, FILTER gave him the opportunity to shoot himself for our Issue 56 cover.
Step inside the hermetically-sealed titanium footwear receptacle of Jack White’s dreams for the man’s very own “shoebox, box camera, camera obscura, pinhole, single-lens reflection reaction to life.” And while you’re at it, let Jack’s own words steer your ship, as he preaches to you the perils of third party film development, the pleasures of all things blue, who the two strange men in his yard are, and why there hasn’t been a photograph of a woman on his refrigerator since last Halloween (until now…and you’ll never guess which of his former bandmates has the honor).
