Polaroid sx-70 | Impossible B&W Film
The monochrome half of our NYC trip. The city felt unusually quiet while we were there and I think it came through in some of these shots. All of which, pull me back.

D and I traveled to New York last weekend for a quick getaway. We fit in La Bohème at the Met, a photo walk with the sx-70, brunch in the East Village, dinner in Hell’s Kitchen, impromptu yoga in a hotel lobby (yeah, I’m that lady), and writing time on the drive. I’m counting the days until we return.
This photo is part of a new still life series I’m been working on titled, Arrangements. Inspiration for this series comes from Pictorialism (an aesthetic movement and style of photography found in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in which the photographer would create an image rather than recording one) as well as sound, texture, pattern, and surface. Shot on 4×5 film and developed by hand in my darkroom. I’m offering prints for sale in my shop as well, if you’d like to take a look.
A nod to Pictorialism and early still life photography dating back to the 1830s with works from Jacques-Louis-Mandé Daguerre and William Henry Fox Talbot. Prints available at my new shop at Saatchi Art.

Still Life 2, January
torn mixtape titled 8.12.72
afternoon set in a rose crystal
sometime ago in the woods, a feather
patchouli and sage on her dress
as she peeled an orange
inside the darkroom last week
