SX-70 Polaroids

Polaroid Manipulations

The images in this portfolio were shot with an old SX-70 Polaroid camera using Time Zero Polaroid film.
When the Polaroids are in the early stages of development the film remains pliable, and is easily manipulated
with blunt objects, various wooden or dental tools. This manipulation interrupts the development process,
altering the color and blurring the lines of the image. The final effect is a dreamy quality that makes simple
images appear wonderfully abstract giving the photograph the appearance of an impressionist painting.
