Process for Photo Based Reliefs
Photo Based Reliefs
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. 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 7, 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 Based Reliefs which include Photography: Sculpture, 1982 and Photography: Cutouts 1996.
Yellow Blue Polaroid is in the European Polaroid Collection at Westlicht Museum, Vienna, Austria and in the book, "From Polaroid to Impossible" "Masterpieces of Instant Photography" 2011.
