These images extend the time it takes to make a photograph from a fraction of a second to weeks, months and sometimes years. The Polaroid negatives for these images are improperly handled and purposely uncleared of its waste chemicals. Over time, the chemistry is allowed to become a part of the photo. It interacts with the sitter, marks the negative and sometimes disintegrates the information on the film. Much like flesh, the negatives change; recognizable features fade, gestures become form and the identity of the sitter is then fluid.
