Lily the Pink

Relieved to receive 1st Pfizer BNT vaccine yesterday, but feel a bit off today, as if Covid fatigue has briefly returned to haunt me: c’est la vie. Medicinal compound, most efficacious in every case! Fortunately a day at home today, so a chance to experiment with some collage and Lily The Pink.

Spectra expired

Expired (2004) Polaroid Spectra instant film provided a starting point with which to explore the ethereal elements of chance while image making with out of date photographic emulsions. The film packs were carefully separated, then the image on film juxtaposed with the internal quasi-negative emulsion, before mounting as a collage on board.

Beyond the frame

Beyond the frame: a developing series of experimental collages expanding around Polaroid instant film images. Drawing upon a diverse range instant photographic materials, including Polachrome/Polapan slide, SX70 and type100 film bases, these mixed-media works seek to expand a view beyond the confines/borders of original instant photographs.
