Our current climate of unrest due to the pandemic has left many feeling isolated and alone. With this series, I wanted to create juxtapositions that would remind humanity that just as night falls, so does the next day come.
I created these works out of my fascination with how temperature affects film. When I first took test shots in the daytime, I noticed that the instant film was warm; conversely, my night shots were cool.
This series has been in progress for over a year and has produced almost 100 unique Polaroid juxtapositions. With this mixed-media/photography project, I express my fascination with opposites and what lives within symmetry’s sublime beauty.
The photo book "People Are Starting to Notice" featured this series and was temporarily stocked and sold at the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art - 2022).
