Polatype Transfers

What do we gain and lose as a result of new technologies is always a question that follows innovation. Do we like the Polaroid film because of the materiality of it or because it reminds us of a part of our history or because it’s instant? The Polatype Transfers is an experiment of analog and digital technologies that explores the strengths of those technologies. The result is a series of images that are old and contemporary; photograph and print; handmade and digitally made; and something entirely new.
