The Old Farm Truck

This is one of my first tries at the Polaroid image transfer process that I made a truck in a farmer's field in Kelowna, BC in the early 90's. This was a straight transfer on to BFK Rives fine art paper, along the bottom edge of the picture some the emulsion did not transfer properly, but still added to the artistic effect. I also used a red filter when I shot the picture on my 8 x 10 view camera with a 300mm lens.

These are absolutely sensational Gary! Have you thought of putting together a series and sending to Lenswork, for example (as part of the extended version, which I believe now publishes color, though I may be wrong). If you have not had these published yet, I urge you to find an appropriate venue, as they are really kind wonderful!

Thanks, Andrew !, yes its something I will have to think about that...I wasn't aware that Lenswork publishes in color....I don't have a huge body of work of these Polaroid, these were done in the mid ninties...Gary
