Polaroid Amigo 620 + Polaroid 600 film

Film was cut up and pulled apart. Layed down with emulsion face up and then slathered in bleach and then I poured boiling water over it and let them sit for 10 minutes. Polaroids were then removed and let to dry overnight, and then scanned. This was scanned from the negative side and has obviously been digitally desaturated.

This image has such an attractive force.

It draws me closer, I want to know more about it.

I think the method is both innovative and brutal and I love that this image is born of such an invasive method.

The actual image is ghost like, an impression in the background and the texture gives the photo an organic quality that is in contrast with the rigid structural subject matter.

The surface texture is what I find most appealing. The surface is not smooth, its got depth to it. I just want to touch it. It's wounds, it's scars. It makes me feel like this place is injured. Forgotten or abused. It emphasizes the sense of the building. It accentuates the personification of the place, it makes it more biological an porous.

Basically, this photo is a curious and mysterious delight.

It appeals so perfectly to my aesthetic that I cannot fault it.
