“Broken Polaroids”

Broken Polaroids

(2013)

 

One winter day I went through a breakup and decided at the moment that I needed to get away from the city and return to nature. Grabbing my Polaroid SX-70 I hadn’t used in a while, I left for the mountains. The first images I took were jamming in the camera. The rollers filled with film gunk, and the images weren’t developing right. Before the images appeared, I was frustrated. Then the images slowly faded in with their magical quality and all felt right. What originally were supposed to be simple landscape images became something more.
