Polaroid instant Spectra film fades from history as film production ceases and these super little cameras, like my Spectra Pro will no longer be fed. These images were made using expired 1990’s original Polaroid Spectra film peeled from pack and mounted on card.
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.
Quatre études (2020): black acrylic marker on Khadi paper with some collage and overlay, A4 size.

Recent sunshine has aided the development of some new image making using cyanotype treated cotton fabric with its rich deep ultramarine hues. The photograms collectively connect with a sense of loss, of passing and quiet melancholy that can be glimpsed lying just under the surface of contemporary experience. This is not so much about sorrowful songs but more the realisation of the existence of a new reality: the ‘new normal’. Ideas and images develop against the backdrop of a contemplative blues tinted landscape.
