Polaroid sx-70 manipulations
Polaroid came out with the SX-70 camera in the 1970’s and the film it used was uniquely qualified to have it’s image area manipulated for fine-art effects. In very simplistic terms, there is a gel pack on the bottom of each photo and when a photo is expelled from the camera this gel pack gets squished up into the image area. As long as that gel remains fluid you can take any kind of object, like a fork, and push, or ‘manipulate’ that gel to create stroke lines and such. Besides being fun to do, I think some of the results can be quite stunning.
I love the painterly look of all of these manipulations.
