Art Description

Photography: Polaroid on Paper.

This boat is a traditional Dutch fishing boat, called a "Botter" or "Klipper" in Dutch. Botter were used from the second half of the eighteeth century until the 1950's when the modern trawlers appeared. There are various versions, specifically designed and built for the region where they were used. This one was used in the "Zuiderzee", an inland and rather rough body of water which was open to the North Sea at the time.

The original image is in Black and White. Under carefully controlled conditions, this image was photographed using Polaroid # 59 Color film. This film is no longer manufactured. The result is an interesting dramatic mixture of black and white and color

A Polaroid transfer is when you peel the Polaroid apart during the developing process and transfer the wet part onto a piece of paper or fabric. I used rice paper for this one.

This is truly a unique photographic artwork and cannot be repeated. This is the only piece in existence
