I’ve been playing with my mom’s Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera.
That’s neighbour Ralph’s Parisienne. It’s always a classic subject.
And this, of course, is Lefty.
I’m testing out the light limits that the Polaroid allows without flash. I find it interesting that the emulsion and coating of a Polaroid is almost instantly recognizable. (pun intended?)
It does have a propensity to make things look “romantic.” Or is it sentimental? Is that just because Polaroid is so much “of an era?”
Or is it the strange colour balance that makes them seem misty and of another time?
Whatever it is, I’m having fun with it.
I will be showing some of these photos in April in a group show at Acme Art & Sailboat Co. in the Commerce Building during the First Friday art crawl. The opening is April 5th.
Look for promo and come out to see the funky, genuine, Polaroid articles.
