This is the first in a series of two polaroid images that were an exploration of a larger series. As an artist I often times use multiple format to capture an entire scene. These were taken on a vintage hasselblad given to me by my grandfather who purchased it in the 70’s. The joy of this medium is that the image itself creates an added layer of surprise and depth. For these images I allowed my subject to move freely against the sharp rocks of her surroundings. I wanted to create a feeling of poetry within her movements and capture a fleeting moment that I was able to capture. I often times like when my subjects are free to move and explore within the work. I find it can create wonderful surprises and unique imagery.
