1995 Leaves - A Polaroid Transfer, Susannah Low

Back in 1994 I thought that this is what I would be doing. Taking the world by storm creating photo illustrative pieces using alternative photographic processes. Now some 16 years later Polaroid film is no more, and my beautiful 5×4 studio camera would be considered an antique! I remember the rush when I lifted the paper back to reveal this image. Such a high. I miss it.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I should be doing. What I want to be doing. Thinking of ways I can free myself up, shake off the cobwebs and get my hands dirty. Watch this space…
