"The photographs in this series are made using Type 55 Polaroid positive/negative film, a film which was expired in 2008. As I peeled apart the film for this image a feeling of despair and panic came over me. Knowing that I have a limited amount of film to work with, the grey corners were all too familiar signs that the image had not processed properly.
The photograph slowly revealed itself to be a perfect balance of medium and subject. Amanda's choice to turn away from the camera is reinforced by the veil like peeling of the film. I specifically work with expired Polaroid film to allow an aspect of serendipity and chaos into my work. "
