Photography: Polaroid, Digital, Marker on Paper.
Unlike most images in this series the original Polaroid was hand coloured and distorted during and after processing.
I bought a Polaroid SX70 when they first came out and over the years since I've taken hundreds of images. Back in 2014 I began scanning and enlarging selected images and the end results were compelling enough for me to move forward and create a series of prints from this project.
This camera has some unique ways in which photos can be manipulated during exposure, you can never be sure what the end result it's very much a collaborative relationship I have with this camera. I capture the subject and a moment but the camera has the final say in the end results. Mind you there is some tinkering I do during exposure that leads to some interesting final images
Starting in 2014 I began work on a project which involved scanning and enlarging a select collection of these images. The end results were promising so work was started on retouching these images. Retouching was mostly limited to eliminating dust spots and applying some filters to manipulate colour and contrast.
No compositing was involved to enhance any aspect of the image or introduce any objects in the image that were not in the original Polaroid including most of the distortions, blurs, filters, contrast and colour. Work in Photoshop was kept to a minimum.
