Andrew Pothecary: photographs

No-photo instant images

For these photos, I squeezed the chemicals of Impossible Project and Polaroid instant photos across the paper with no photograph having been taken.
The chemicals for developing the paper were manipulated in darkness or exposed to the light, and pushed around with my fingers or a tool. I used colour, black-and-white and tinted paper, and these scans include the frame (white, black and circular). Over time the "images" deteriorate somewhat, and the chemicals crack and alter. A selection from about 60 or more photos.
