This image was shot on transparency film and the transparency was manipulated further using a Daylab printer and Polaroid pull apart film where the film is pulled apart before a positive can be processed. The dyes remaining on the Polaroid film were then transferred by rolling onto blotting paper. This is a very unique technique as you will never be able to reproduce the same image twice. There will always be a different amount of dye remaining on the film each time you do it making each image different from the last.
A red pencil was also used here to darken the lips a little and the bottom of the dress. A black pencil was also used on the bottom.

    This is REALLY cool…is it me – or does this look like a geniune watercolor painting? LOVE the technique applied here – and the look in her eyes is very compelling…both feral and child-like.

  • both feral and child-like.
