This shoot was set up at the Polaroid Studios at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA. 1982. It took hours to set up the shoot. The technician pressed the button on the Polaroid camera. 90 seconds later out came this 20" x 24" photograph. The camera is the size of a small refrigerator. Each print is unique. 

The processes from beginning to end originated in my studio for the Photo Based Reliefs which include Photography: Sculpture, 1982 and Photography: Cutouts 1996.
