From the series Pola-Visions reflecting past fading memories on expired time-zero Polaroid film and taken on vintage SX70 cameras.
I haven’t been posting as I have been preparing for a long distance change of location – a pain and a blessing. I was forced to attack 27 years of photography images – film, digital and alternative. Within the purge and sort, I saw a new series I had been working on all along, but did not see until now. Images I thought were “one of a kinds” with no continuity to any working series I had in progress, so set aside. Who knew? #weseefromwithin
Due to preparing to move there has been no time for Polaroid fun. So, I took a day off this week and created “The Healing of She”. A wonderful way to enjoy my day and refresh before I say goodbye and finish my move. #timezero #expiredpolaroid #sx70 #polaroid
Things do not happen unless you (as in the words of a Macy Gray song) “Get up, get up and do SOMETHING, don’t let your life just pass you by”.
And then I realized how many images I have taken of the power of feminine… Works that express my inner self within the visual. I have had so many prayers, and it started to creep into my (subconscious) work.
So once I land in a new home, I will be exploring this further. I’ll keep you posted!
Always loving the degradation of chemicals. Another day embracing the final supply of film. From my Pola-Vision Series.
I have been asked to exhibit my Pola-Vision Series on the second floor of the Faulk Central Library during this year’s West Austin Studio Tour in May 2015. Ten large format Polaroid Time Zero print images shot with vintage SX70 cameras will be on display for the tour, and continue to be on exhibit through June.
A bit of history on the library: The Austin Public Library opened in 1926. The present Central Library building was constructed in 1979. In 1995 the Central Library was renamed John Henry Faulk Central Library in honor of local writer and free speech hero John Henry Faulk. As the main library, Faulk Central serves as the reference and collection backbone for the entire Austin Public Library system.
Thank you City of Austin and the Library for this opportunity.
