Polaroid sx-70 | Impossible Color Film +++++ 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 4x5 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. 4x5 Pacemaker Crown Graphic | Atomic-X 100 | R5 Monobath Developer
