Red Yellow, Polaroid Photo/Cutout. 24" x 16"H x 7"D, Red Yellow 20" x 24" Polaroid Photograph, 1996
This shoot was set up at the Polaroid Studios at the Museum of Fine Arts, MA 1982. It took hours to set up the shoot. The technician pressed the button on the Polaroid camera. 60 seconds later out came this 20” x 24” photograph. The camera was the size of a small refrigerator. Each print is unique. There are no negatives. There were seven 20” x 24” Polaroid cameras in the world. Five are still in existence. The processes from beginning to end originated in my studio for the photo/constructions and Photo/Cutouts.
Yellow Blue Polaroid is part of the European Polaroid Collection at WestLicht Museum, Vienna, Austria. It is also published in their book, "From Polaroid to Impossible Masterpieces of Instant Photography"
