Experimental SX-70 Collage – acrylics, paper & Polaroids

Over the past few months I have been experimenting with collage art and Polaroid SX-70 film.  Peeled, scraped, layered, transferred or lifted these analog manipulations have become an imperative material in my latest collage art creations. 

I used Polaroid’s SX-70 Artistic TZ (limited-edition) film.  This was my first attempt with using SX-70 for emulsion lifts.  I previously worked with Fuji 100c & Polaroid 669 film.  I read somewhere that the earlier Time Zero (SX-70) film wouldn’t work for emulsion lifts.  So, needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised when the Artistic TZ lifted/transferred with ease!

Comments and/or questions always appreciated.  Thanks!

 

Fade to Black…a Polaroid weekend

Weekend back-road trip through Western Indiana and Eastern Illinois. All of the images were taken with a Polaroid SX-70 Sonar camera using expired FadetoBlack film. This limited edition film requires manipulation within minutes after developing or the image will ‘fade 2 black’ (hence the name). The longer one waits to manipulate the photo, the darker it will get – turning completely black in well under 24 hours. I manipulated the images below about 3-5 minutes after development. I found this film to be a perfect choice for capturing the decaying beauty of these historic barns.
