Ruined Polaroids (2011)
"These pictures are taken with a camera that is, by most definitions, broken: an old Polaroid SX-70 camera.
With its first use I realized the camera wasn’t functioning properly.
It sometimes spills out 2 pictures at a time and the film often gets stuck in the gears,
exposing and mangling them in unpredictable ways.
The image as it is exposed within the camera becomes pulled and stressed by these violent mechanisms,
often to abstraction. Each one is determined by the idiosyncrasies of the film and the camera.
This project, Ruined Polaroids, is an unintended exploration into the 3-dimensional physical character
of an antiquated photographic medium that touches on subjects such as the nature of chance,
destruction and what constitutes a photograph.”
