Polaroid Spectra fades

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.

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instant film provided a starting point with which to explore the ethereal elements of chance while image making with out of date photographic emulsions.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.
