Polaroids: Black Bra Triptych
[Camera: Polaroid SLR 680 – impossible project (expired) monochrome film]
Lovely wee set of three photos I took of a friend earlier this year with some Haiku about breasts, STDs & cum (in that order).
As you come undone
Hook by hook – i’m an addict
And I need my fixUnlike suffragettes
It won’t be your bra that is
Burning tomorrowSeamen timpani
Drumming on your chest and neck
Love note wet wiped off
Fujifilm Instax: Friends of Mine Triptych
[Camera: Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 – instant 300 film]
I took these photos of some friends over the last few months & wrote these 5-7-5 haiku about shagging & disappointment to go with them. Ta.
I do love you – though
I’m drawn to the gutter
Time and time again
It’s fleeting so please
Don’t ask me to be faithful
I will let you down
Sometimes on dark days
I think of you and wonder
Who’s fucking you now?
Polaroids: Redemption Triptych
[Camera: Polaroid Impulse AF – impossible project 600 colour film (out of date – 11/14)]
Immoral sex acts –
Slowly digging your own grave
With favours of flesh
Tie up heavy burdens – then
Remove your panties
Casting off darkness in light
Corrupted by faith
The sun still rises
On the wicked and unjust
So do what you love
Polaroids: Expired Image/Spectra Film Triptych
[Camera: Polaroid Image with Close Up Stand – expired Polaroid film]
These were shot on expired Polaroid film using a Polaroid Image (full switch) camera with a Close-Up 7500 stand attachment.
The “full switch” version of the Image/Spectra camera feature sliders for exposure control, flash, AutoFocus, sound override, self-timer and a feet or meters distance selector. While the one switch version allows you to control only the exposure.
Image/Spectra/1200 type film is a wider format than the usual 600/sx-70 Polaroid film (9.2 x 7.3 cm vs 7.9 x 7.9 cm). This film expired 02/05 which has given the prints a dreamy pastel colouring along with undeveloped patches and vertical stripes of colour. This is all down to the thickening, evaporation and ageing of the emulsion due to the film being out of date and/or badly stored.
