Near the end of the process of making a lift, the polaroid is in my electric frying pan and the emulsion is now ready to be removed from the base and transfered to the artsy paper. This is the moment I love. All the work comes down to this. The highlights are so thin that the emulsion stretches like crazy, creating all this extra emulsion. What to do with it? I take a fine brush and push the emulsion around until Im happy with it. But, you have to work fairly quickly. Usually the music is affecting the decisions. Appropriate to the image, these were done to latin jazz. Its late February. I'm sick of winter and would rather be in the caribbean. So, I thought Id share these for anyone who is also sick of winter, and wants to be somewhere where all you really have to wear is your ... camera. 1. 2.
