States of destruction

 


Through the process of applying different techniques to alter the surface of Polaroid film, this work bring to the forefront the physical nature of photographic surface, together with its inherent fragility.


The sheets of instant film have been modified in ways that ordinarily have no place in photographic processes, by using instruments, heat, bleach and other methods.  Each piece is unique reflecting the decisive role that chemicals play in the image making process - with no picture to develop, they themselves become the image.


States of Destructionattempts to reveal the tangibility - as well as the limitations - of analogue materials and processes that are absent in digital photography.
